This is the JCK branded (JCK Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan white #2) version of the Fujiwara Nashiji 270 suji. It has never been sharpened (just stropped on balsa) but I have smoothed and rounded the spine and choil (if you've ever handled a Teruyasu Fujiwara knife you know they come "a little rough"). And of course it comes with a custom handle from some guy named Mikey:D. The handle has a live end red mallee body, desert ironwood ferrule, and dyed black ash spacer. Despite the size, this is a very nimble suji and has pretty amazing edge retention. It still has the factory edge, but is probably due for a little stone work. If you'd like me to sharpen it before shipping just let me know. Price for this is $375 including domestic shipping (international is $365 + actual shipping costs).

Maybe wrong place to ask, but why is the butt of handle not clean cut and left the way it is?

If this was a B/S/T listing it would be the wrong place to ask. As this is a "Hobbyist Craftsman" sales listing, it's a perfectly legitimate question. I chose to go with a live end style because I felt it would go well with the rustic finish Teruyasu Fujiwara knives are known for. A sleek, highly refined handle would look out of place on this blade, and a plain subdued handle would just be no fun at all.

Be well,
Mikey

Ok, I'm going to withdraw this and send it out to Jon to have the blade road and bevel evened out. I'll relist it when I get it back.


Be well,
Mikey
