Hi KKF,

I've got a nearly new Toyama Damascus 240 I'd like to sell or trade. I purchased it after semi giving up on my hunt for an iron clad wat 240. Then I found the wat not long after and these two are too close together to keep both. I purchased this through Zenmarket so it didn't come from JNS. I won't be able to recreate the cigarette smell in the handle, but I could blow some cigar smoke on it this weekend if that helps anyone out! Looking for something slightly shorter, 220-230ish range would be ideal. Trade value I'd put around $600.

In total this knife has cut one onion and one sweet potato. In my test cuts the knife held up to its reputation as a great cutter. It has a nice convexity for right handers and may not be the best for lefties.

Specs:
Length: 243mm
Height: 54mm
Weight: 228g

Are there other specs outside of length you're targeting? Makers, steel type, etc?


Good question, ideally a 225mm Kip laser-ish knife (@timebard 🤣)!

For steel I like carbon, stainless clad is ok, full stainless I'm finding is not my cup of tea.

Grind I would lean towards WH or S grind, but I'm open here.

Yo or wa handle is cool with me.

Probably not looking for Wats, TF, Tanaka or Moyjin (unless Kaiju because who says no to that). I've been through enough of those guys to have a good feel and know what I like from each of them.
