They are stainless steel (sadly, not something we can share at the makers request) at 61hrc. They come with d-shaped rosewood handles with a white spacer... and maybe the coolest thing is that the saya pin is attached to the saya by a string, so you never have to worry about loosing one again ;)

They will be up for sale very soon... the pricing should be as follows (i just have to double check a few things)

240mm= $190
270mm= $215
300mm= $250

Yanagibas are one of the few areas where I don't see any need for stainless steel, that said those look killer and for a crazy low price.

I like that handle and saya. I wish my pins were attached.

At first look I thought, "Jon got some more cool stuff I will never be able to afford", then I scrolled down to the price.

I am so in for a 240 when they get posted... Looks nice, and I've been wanting a SS One for a while to replace my cheaper than dirt one
