WTT: Devin Thomas 254mm Gyuto in PD-1 Steel

Post by toddnmd »

This is the crown jewel of my modest collection, and I’m looking for a similarly special gyuto, but in a slightly smaller size.

Strong preference for a stainless or semi-stainless gyuto, 225-230mm on the edge, ~50-52mm tall. Nice handle a plus—I’m a sucker for burl or other nice wood. I'd consider a DT ITK and some cash, but am hoping to find something even nicer, if possible.

Stats: ~254mm heel to tip, 53mm tall at heel. 261 grams. PD-1 steel, which just might be my ideal steel. This knife is just a bit long for me to use and love as much as I’d like to. Main handle wood is afzelia xylay (gator skin). Very light home use, practically new.

I believe this knife could be someone’s unicorn—I’m hoping to also find mine in a trade. My ideal trade would be a shorter version of this knife (probably not likely . . . but, I've gotta try)

Trade value: $850. Willing to give or receive cash, if needed. Preference for a trading partner in the U.S., but could work with international shipping for the right trade.
