Post by Kalaeb » Mon Mar 12, 2018 8:54 pm

This is a catch and release for me. Great knife from a phenominal makers, it just does not suite my style.

215mm Suji, height is 42mm. [email protected] 64.5 hrc with walnut handle. Weight clocks in at 147grams. Spacers are copper and leather.

Original price is 750.00 for blade only, saya is 100 extra. Will do both knife and saya for 750 all in shipped to CONUS and pp covered by me. I have sharpened the knife once...takes a wicked edge.

I thought this would sell quick. They have a wait list more than 3 years long.

It has a splotchy patina...I can remove that real quick with some semichrome if the buyer wants.

It is nearly a gyuto at that height. I have to admit that my BB makes me more and more happy every time I use it. If I had the funds I'd try it. GLWS.
