Time to be honest and, as nice as this knife is, I have to admit I don't use it. Gotta go!
Bought this 6 months ago from JNS and has been used very, very lightly and very little since. I haven't even sharpened it. Octagonal chestnut handle, some famous Shigefusa clouds, & was originally a special order by Maxim sold from his own collection. (His first ever Shig special order, he said.) To quote the write up:
'This one is from my own collection 250mm Shigefusa Kasumi Sujihiki
Special made, extra thin ! it was my first Custom order from Shigefusa
But as i have now 3 Sujikihikis already from him this one is not used at all
Better it go to someone that will use it !
It have been re handled and polished up with Natural stones so FF is better then normal
Have a look at the full write up with photos here: http://www.japanesenaturalstones.com...hiki-p/866.htm. Even though it still looks the same, I can post my own photo tomorrow if anyone needs.
As it really hasn't been used, I'm asking the same as I paid which was DKK 2,900 or $515 (paypal included) + shipping. Internationals okay.
