What it says, looked at Leftys awesome rehandle and realized that looks like a very nice profile.
Dragon engraving preferred....

Thanks for looking

There is a beautiful 270 on sharp and shiny. I want it so bad but I have a 240 and don't think I need both

Unfortunately, it is sold and already making someone very happy! They are wonderful knives. :)

Thanks for the comments regarding the new handle.

Edit; forgot to write that the old style with engraved dragon is preferred.

Thanks

One of my preferred ones. Mine performed much better after I'd put a small flat symmetric section on it, near the heel, Ó la franšaise. No more edge retention problems, for little rough tasks use the heel part (32 degree inclusive, symmetric).
I especially like the ease of sharpening. Just one problem: it's over before you're aware.

Around 2 years ago they started stamping the dragon instead of engraving.

As in ink stamp, with no indentation?

There goes any desire to own a Misono...

Don't knock them before you try them....

Fair enough. Profile looks sweet and have heard good things about the steel. If they were wa handled I would've tried one, and almost did just because I thought the engraved dragon was the coolest thing. Maybe I should get over my handle problem :scratchhead:

I would've lent you mine, but it'll now be impossible to pry it outta my hands! :)

If you can try one, I say go for it. But, I've always been an open fan of Misono knives.

I love mine and can't wait to see what Dave does with the heavily figured koa and the handle on it. :pirate1:

I love mine and over the years it's probably been my most used knife. A wa conversion is what I'd like to do eventually if I could save the money for it and stop buying knives for a second.

i wouldnt call it a stamp. my swede is 2 weeks old and its atleast etched very nicely into the blade. i dont know what the difference is between the new ones and the old ones but mine looks cool.

Now imagine the old style engraved and with a wa-conversion.... Now that is something!

Compared to finding someone willing to part with a stash of Carter Mutekis? This should be a piece of cake...

Don't get me wrong, i never said it is bad :D. I love my Misono UX10 and i would love to have the dragon one day, i think it is an awesome knife :)
