Re: Looking for a new best over all workhorse

Re: Looking for a new best over all workhorse

WTS JCK Hinoura Shirogami 1 / Stainless Clad KU 210 Gyuto

Excellent condition. And I don’t think this specific model will be back around. W#1 is screaming sharp. KU cladding is gorgeous, scratch and rust proof. Chestnut handle is fabulous.
