    Yanagiba, Honesuki and Filet Knife

    Kobayashi Hontan Seikon Dojo Professional Right-Handed Sashimi Hocho - 300mm with Saya

    Bought a year ago from Epicurian Edge. Evidently Kobayashi is no longer alive and did not have any other family members to pass his knife making trade to. So this knife will not be made again. I don't know how to sharpen Single Bevel knives properly so I've never sharpened it, only stropped it with leather. since I moved from the coast, I don't make a lot of sashimi at home anymore. Its Hon Kasumi in Blue #2. Epic Edge only has one left in a 360. I have original box too.
    $240 Shipped CONUS

    Moritaka Honesuki 150 Blue Super AS. I've had this knofe for about two years. Bought from Chef Knives. It's beautifuly ground. There are some Mori's that have had grind problems (I know I got one). This knife is perfect though. Holds an edge forever. I hate letting go it it but these days i'm using my Deba to break down birds to the Mori just sits on the wall watching.
    $105 Shipped CONUS

    Mac Pro 7" Filet Knife. This knife will flex beyond 45 degrees as the blade is so thin. I doubt its even 0.5mm. Its been a good companion, but again, I've been using the Deba more for fish these days.

    $80 +$10 for shipping CONUS.

    Yes The Yanagiba is for right hands. The Honesuki and Mac are double beveled and can be used by either hand.

    I havent sold the Mac yet but the Yani and Mori are sold. Still need to make space on the magnet for recent purchase.

    You can have the 7" Mac Professional Filet knife for $50 shipped CONUS. Is a $170 knife in excellent shape.
