Toyama 270mm Kasumi Gyuto -

Post by delmar »

Got this from Kevin (Ashy2Classy) a few weeks back. He used lightly once, I used lightly once. Truly like new. D-shape stock handle (nice, though).

It is a scud missile that eats produce. Just too close to 2 other knives I have, including a Watanabe Gyuto that I won't get rid of.

Dimensions:
Edge Length - 275mm
Height at heel - 60mm
Weight - 9.77 oz / 277 g

What's included
Toyama 270mm gyuto
Original box

Price
$450 shipped to USA. International buyers pay actual shipping minus $10. Price includes PP fees. These guys are $480 new out of JNS last time round, when you could find them. They sell out fast. For good reason.

Photos are Kevin's, but they are accurate as to current condition.

Someone needs to buy this. I just picked up the SS version, otherwise I'd consider buying it back. JNS doesn't know if they'll be getting any more iron-clad Toyamas so buy 'em while you can!! It's beast and cuts with the best of 'em.

Yes, it's from JNS. I sold it because I bought a 270mm honyaki gyuto and didn't need the iron-clad version any longer.

This is still up!

This is arguably the king of all knives. I would buy it if I didn’t already have one.

I'm selling it because I have a 270mm differentially hardened custom inbound.

Sold. Ashy (Kevin) passed along a buyer for the knife he originally sold me. Classy and stand up dude. Gotta love the forumites!
