    For sale Wakui V2 kurouchi 240 gyuto.

    V2 carbon core with soft iron clad
    Edge lenght 241mm
    Heel height 48,9mm
    Weight 172gr
    Total lenght 400mm
    Spine at the handle 4,9mm
    -"- heel 3,8mm
    -"- middle 1,9mm
    -"- 10mm from tip 0,85-0,9mm
    Burnt chestnutt handle

    I've got this from japan-messer-shop.de(link https://www.japan-messer-shop.de/Ha...i-V2-Kurouchi-Gyuto-24-cm-nicht-rostfrei.html)

    I have cut few times with it, no sharpening or touchup, the edge is as sharp when I got it. This is my second Wakui, beast of a performer for the price. But it is just too narrow for me to enjoy it fully and that is why I am letting it go. Slight patina.

    I would like to have 200$ shipped to EU, 220$ elsewhere.

    Thanks for looking.

    Basically a Kochi without Jon's tweaks. Great blade. GLWS!

    Is it safe to say that rust won’t be a problem anywhere but on the exposed steel edge?

    As long as I’m making my first post on this forum, what does “bump” mean? GLWS? Thanks.

    This Wakui has iron cladding too so it will rust if not used or maintain propably. Bump is just a word used when bringing your wts thread up.

    bump = I'm entering a new post to rekindle interest in the thread (usually sale/trade). GLWS = good luck with sale.

    I have this exact knife. Absolute beast - thin and nimble. The cladding is slightly reactive but nothing to worry about if you remember to wipe it. I've cut a ton of red onions and so far it's just developing a very calm patina.
