Hi all,

Up for consideration is Sakai Yuskuke White #2 150mm Wa Honesuki with Saya. This one was a
special order from Keichi of BlueWayJapan. I believe its geometry is comparable to Ashi Hamono and/or
Gesshin Ginga, and Konosuke versions: 150mm tip to handle; 38mm tall at the heel; about 2mm thick at
the spine. It has a slight convex grind on the front side, and flat on the back.

It's been used sparingly at home, still is in great shape, and has some light patina. Steel is nice and tough
for white, never chipped this one myself breaking down chicken.

Looking for 150 AUD shipped anywhere in AU. Oversea shipping would be extra.

I'm selling this only because a new true single bevel Yoshikane Honesuki is coming my way from Maxim.

It's is one nice-looking honesuki. This is a sweet deal! Timing is wrong for me -- repairing the roof of my convertible this week before winter hits -- else I'd grab it.

Hmm, doesn't this Yusuke Honesuki perk anyone else's interest?
