    welcome!
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.

    This is a Masahiro.

    The handle on this thing is a disgusting slippery plastic? Is it?

    One of my apprentices had one. Decent blade, bad handle.

    Nice wood handle, in very good shape considering the neglect this knife obviously suffered. Brass rivets too. Maybe the newer ones have plastic handles, I see they have steel rivets. Looks like they've maybe come down in quality since mine was made. Any one know how long they've been making these, or when they stopped using brass rivets? I'd love to have an idea how old mine is.

    Thanks again for the info, and the welcomes!

    I've got the 270 suji of this knife and like it quite a bit too. Biiiiig handle, could use a bit of rounding on the hard edges, but a good steel/value

    believe it's a rosewood handle too but it may be another material.

    Most definitely seen the same Masahiro virgin carbon with very same kanji and with plastic handle.

    210 chefs knife.
