Am on the hunt for a good suji under $400. Am interested in Watanabe, Takeda, Masakage Koishi, Konosuke. Am open to others. That Yoshi sld dammy maxim is selling seems like a great deal.... been very close to pulling the trigger on it a few times but thought id try here first. Thanks!
P.S. Have near new 150mm hattori fh petty and brand new in box mac ulitmate slicer for trade or sale also...

You'd be surprised how affordably you can get a Rodrigue, Harner or others on this site (Mikey Davis, yup Mikey...Mario, the usual suspects).

mmmm that would be good too, always seemed just out of my price range...

jimbob, IMO, grab Maxim's SLD suji while you can. brand new yoshikane sld Damascus with 30% off that is great deal! I have used Watanabe, Takeda, Masakage Koishi, Konosuke and yoshikane SLD Damascus is still my favor one! custom knife are nice but they cost from ~$500 to ~$1500 and require 3~12 months waiting time....however,you can always re-handle yoshi SLD later-on for kill custom looking! my favor gyuto is Japanese steel with custom handle..cut nice, great look, cost less & best of all no looooooooong waiting time!! my :2cents:

Out of curiosity, what can I get under 400 dollars delivered if we talk custom?

Under $400? That's very tough...but under $500, or so, you open up a lot of options.

Maxim came through with one more yoshikane sld dammy suji. Couldn't resist. Trying to conjure a nice handle for Stefan to make now. Was a hard decision between that and a kato 270 suji, both were good deals. Ended up choosing yoshikane for ease of care and sharpening. ( and the purdy Damascus). Ill wait till I'm a better sharpener before I venture into kato and shig land

Congrats. Maksim's sale was too hard to resist. DHL should be dropping off my second package tomorrow, although I didn't score one of those Damascus sujis :crytissue:

One just landed a little earlier this morning. Yoshi SLD damascus suji is quite pretty, and it also kinda fits ok into generic suji saya I have already had.

My yoshikane petty arrived this morning too, rather quick I thought. Wish I had the foresight to realsise I would buckle and shipped them both together!
