    Looking to try out/trade for a left-handed Kama-usuba. Let me know what you want and maybe we can make it happen.

    Think Keichi needs a badger hair brush? Haha.

    Seriously, are the ones on blueway any good?

    I think they are all made in Sakai so, hit or miss. I haven't really used a usuba but, maybe twice.

    Blueway is generally Sakai Yusuke stuff, the gyuto i had from them was pretty sweet.

    I got one from Keiichi, not one of the listed ones, and there was a slight bend in the blade. For what it cost it was still worth the risk and I've heard good reports of other usubas from there

    I got an Ichimonji from Keiichi 210 in Blue #2. I thought the grind was pretty good, only one small overgrind. I think they're a great deal for the $. Cool knife but really very specialized like no other knife I've owned. Be sure that you know what you want this knife for. Makes a Nakiri or Deba look like an all-rounder. Requires a special cutting technique to use properly.
