I'm testing the waters to see if there is any interest for this knife. I realized that I don't really use a yanagi much anymore, so I am thinking about selling it to work on building up my knife kit again. I acid etched the blade to give it a blue hue and to reduce the reaction of the blade with food/acid, etc.

the blade is white #1 and the handle is ebony with a blonde buffalo horn ferrule. I spent $570 new for it with the saya. I'm looking for around $475 for it or an interesting trade. I'm not really sure what I'm looking for as far as trades go, just looking for something interesting.

Wow, sexy knife. I have a soft spot for yanagis, looking for single bevels for trade? Good luck rebuilding your kit, read about what happened.

I'll listen to any trade, not really sure what I'm looking for. Just looking for something interesting, as long as it isn't another yanagi since I don't use them often enough.

I am very interested, but I am also very broke. If you drop the price down to like $50 let me know.

I've sold a few knives this way, and it can be a good deal for both parties.

No apology needed good sir. I was being an a-hole for no reason, I do beg your pardon.

I am happy to step aside as you are interested in this knife, hope you guys negotiate a good deal.

I'm sorry, but I don't want to trade for another yanagi. This konosuke is the perfect yanagi in my eyes, so if I needed one I woul keep it. I just never really use yanagis anymore, which is why I am (very reluctantly I might add) parting with this one.

Love it. What exactly did you use to acid etch the blade?

I heated up cider vinegar, then soaked a cloth in it and wrapped that around the blade. I let that sit for a few hours, cleaned the blade off and repeated the process. I used rubber bands to keep the cloth tight around the blade.
