I bought this a bit ago from ramenlegend. I love the Hiromoto AS series knives (I own 4) and bought this 210. I am just really not using it. I find myself reaching for a 240 90% of the time. He replaced the stock handle himself with this bubinga one with mosaic pins. The fit and finish is not perfect but still a mighty fine knife. And still way better than the stock handle. The blade has been thinned and the spine and choil rounded. Super sharp and keeps a great edge like the Hiromoto AS knives are known to. I will sell it for what I paid. $125 shipped cont US.
