Hi KKF,

Have a trio of Watanabe gyutos for sale. The 240 and 210 are old school iron clad examples and I picked up the 180 a little bit ago directly to complete the little set. They compliment each other very nicely. The 240 is beefy, the 210 cuts like crazy, and the 180 is nice for smaller tasks. I'll also include the lovely tenugui towel as well to complete the aesthetic!

Asking $1,200 for the set Stainless 180 sold, bigger two remain.

Asking $950 $900 $850 for the 240/210 combo, specs and pictures below.

Wat 240 - Iron Clad:
Specs: 245mm x 58mm x 290g
Handle from Graydon DeCollibus
*Note small scratch on left side of bevel. Caught the knife while putting a final edge on after polishing...

Wat 210 - Iron Clad:
Specs: 213mm x 49mm x 222g
Handle - custom African Blackwood

Wat 180 - Stainless Clad:
Specs: 185mm x 46mm x 136g


Will follow up with individual knife pics in the next couple posts

210 Iron Clad KU Watanabe pics

I'll post a better choil shot of this one later when I get home. The edge doesn't curl like it looks to be doing here...I'd put this near the top cutters I've experienced - slightly behind Kip & Tsourkan, on par with Shihan and Kato!

I used to own that 210. Sold it for a song if iirc 🥲. I believe I even still have a friction fit wenge saya I made for it sitting in my garage 😬, I’ll buy it back right now if you split em up.

Hehe you're second in line on that one if they split up. Someone grab the 240 please!
 
Let's try $900 on the set.

I've had a few people ask - not very interested in selling just the 210. If no love on the set, chance I withdraw the 210 and just sell the big guy.

@Gregmega - I love CA garage storage. I wish I could dig up a picture of how much midwestern junk I crammed into our little garage the 1 year I lived out in SoCal...
