This was a custom order... i wanted to take nicer pictures of it, but the owner of the knife came in so quick to pick it up we didnt have a chance to. Anyways, here are the pictures we did take (from the cell phone... sorry)

Very nice. Beautiful handle! Maybe you can convince the owner to join the KKF knuthouse and post some on the job photos :biggrin:

not a chance... he's way too busy. I barely get to hang out with him and he works 10 minutes from where i live.

Maybe next time i hang out with him, i can take some more pictures.

I've often wondered whether Hide made honyaki yanagibas. Seeing this one does not disappoint.

They can make a wide variety of stuff... some much more beautiful than even this. But for the most part, i stock the blue #1 gesshin hide because they are great knives (especially for the price) and are designed to really be used in a professional environment (not just a show piece... even if that show piece can really be used). We actually do quite a few special orders from gesshin hide.

My first thought was 'Wow, very nice but somehow wrong' before I realized it was a leftie...

Time to upgrade your cell then, for situations just like this!

A lefty in the store and I didn't even get to see you hold it?!?! Not fair... Awesome looking knife. And yes, the blue #2 gyuto by Hide is an awesome knife for a professional kitchen!
