WTS Tilman Leder 270mm gyuto

I'm putting up for sale my custom 270mm Tilman Leder wa-gyuto. I'm the original owner, and I've used it lightly in a home environment for a couple of months, and it's been sharpened once, but otherwise it's sporting its original geometry. The knife cost $660 new, and I'm asking for $580 USD, including shipping within the US. I'm shipping from the continental US, but I'd potentially be open to an international sale if we split shipping charges.

It's a great knife with a solid middleweight grind and beautiful fit and finish (especially the handle, the relief on the choil and spine, and the finish on the blade itself). That said, I'm moving on because I'm looking for a 270 that's on the lighter side compared to this one. Here are a couple facts and measurements on the knife:

Steel: Niolox, stainless steel alloyed with niobium. Tilman is well-known for his heat treatment of this steel.

Spine thickness: 3.12mm at the handle, thinning down to a nice .85mm about 1 cm from the tip.

Height: 55mm at the heel

Weight: 247 grams

Handle: Stabilized maple burl with blonde buffalo horn ferrule and endcap (the endcap has some really nice black marbling), and nickel spacers.

Profile: The knife has a solid flat spot along ~40% of its length, before rising toward the tip. There's a tiny bit of recurve right at the heel.

Price: $580
