No, I don't need 4 KU AS gyutos. So letting 2 go. Keeping Takeda full size and Moritaka for now.

Shiro Kamo 243mm AS KU Gyuto - new, never used
243mm following profile
52mm at heel
gentle taper, holds through mid section, thins out
7.4oz
Snakewood and blond horn ferrule (really well done, transition solid, install tight).
Picked up for a friend overseas recently, but he decided he wanted my Moritaka. So need to let this go.
Grind and profile *very* similar to R2
$195, includes insurance and shipping CONUS

Takeda Sasanoha Stainless Clad 247mm AS KU Gyuto - only a few uses
Bought almost new not too many months ag0. I used for a 2-3 dinners.
Crazy light and thin, like a rapier.
Handle tasteful and well done
It was sold to me as classic, but I am 99.9% sure it is stainless (can tell by stamp and upgraded KU finish)
247mm following profile
50mm at heel
4.3 oz (not a typo)
$335, including insurance and shipping CONUS

I can vouch for the Takeda here. It's a great knife!
Extremely light as mentioned. Was always a NAS.

Hey Joe, thanks for the photos.

And you are right - it was sold as a NAS. Got my wires crossed with another Takeda.

Somebody needs to buy that snakewood Shiro. Fantastic knives. Grinds are insanely good.

If I hadn't just picked up one of his ironwood 210s I'd be all over it.
