I hate to do this, but here it goes: I had ordered this knife from So about 2 1/2 years ago, and after I had given up on it already, So notified me a few weeks ago that it has arrived. Unfortunately, this is the worst moment for me to buy a knife since I have a hole bunch of financial commitments this summer (and a car that may fall apart any minute), so I wanted to see if anybody is interested in it. If not, I'll just take it.
It's a 225mm kasumi wa gyuto. The knife currently is still with So, but I can ask for him to EMS it over anytime. The knife comes without a handle, but there are solutions for that... The knife cost me around $400. That would also be the cost for you as it is (i.e. No handle). For $500 you will get it with one of the off-the-shelf handles that I made for Dave, $550 with a custom handle.
To be honest, I am not quite up to date on the Shigefusa prices, if this is totally off or if you are interested, please let me know by PM.
