With some regret, I'm posting my second Kato for sale. Price is $450 + shipping and insurance. I have two versions of the Kato and a bunch of other gyotos and more on the way. The only way I can buy more is to sell something. I used this gyoto once as part of my lengthy Kato v. Kato review. There's a lot of information about the knife in the review. kato-vs-kato-steel-cage-match-t8052.html

I haven't used it since. Here are some current photos with patina. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did. PayPal would be preferred method of payment.

Honestly wasn't shit talk. I really do wish the entire review etc. was posted there for edification as the conversation about Kato over there is limited to one retailer's custom run. And you know me, if I wanted to talk shit, I'm more than happy to do it over there ;)

I do wish I could have kept it and performed more comparisons of the two knives. In particular I would have been interested in getting a better sense of the differences in the steel used in both knives. One thing I did notice based on my test - although it is a limited sample - is that the Workhorse, OOTB edge and all, was less chippy than the CKTG Kato after a professional sharpening. I would guess that there may be differences in the heat treatment and that maybe the WH might be less hard. I'd also be interested in comparing the edge retention of the two over time.
