I want to trade this knife for a high quality 270 sujihiki.
Of all the gyuto's I've owned this is the only one that has remained in my rotation. It's not the nicest or most expensive, but it has all the positive attributes written about the Konosuke HD's from several years back through the present. A laser that can serve as a workhorse, this knife isn't delicate or prone to chip. I'm not one to wax nostalgic about objects, but this knife has a bit of soul to it.
Kalaeb took off the wa handle (the wa blades were thinner than the yo's IIRC) and put on a hidden tang two-toned ringed gidgee western handle with a blue resin ferrule.
I've taken excellent care of this knife and am letting it go only because the i have a semi custom gyuto coming in and need a 270 sujihiki to complete the five or six knives needed for a full kit.
Sorry for the crappy cell phone pictures, but I lost my good digital camera.
