I don't read Japanese, but using the translator and looking at Ichimonji web site I think it's

At an exchange rate of 77 yen to the dollar, 107,100 yen comes out to a whopping $1,390.70 for a new one!

Saya is included, cream buffalo horn ferrule, octagon handle. Knife is used, still in excellent condition. Above the shinogi has what they call "mirror polish" although not a true mirror, it is almost a mirror polish. The blade road has been polished by me with Ohira and uchigumori natural stones. It is fully sharpened and ready to use. Asking $550 shipped, please add 3% if using PayPal. Willing to consider trades for a knife of similar value, if necessary.

Pls send PM if interested, thanks.
