    Gonbei Hammered Damscus

    The Gonbei Hammered Damascus Series is BACK IN STOCK, but with a different handle... we have switched over to Ichii octagon handles. The ichii handles are larger overall, have a bit of taper to them, unlike the rosewood, and have buffalo horn ferrules instead of pakkawood. We will update our photos in the meantime, but for now, here is a quick group shot.

    The look nice, are they the better alternative to the now overpriced SKD Yoshikane knives? And do they come without handles also? (Although the Ichii handles do look nice).

    Not quite the same as the yoshikane... and sadly, i dont have ones without handles. I may be able to order one for you that way, but it would take some time if thats ok. Also, what i have found is that most of the makers in japan feel uncomfortable sending handle-less knives, as its like sending a half finished product. Wholesalers and retailers will do it for customers, but they arent making the knives, so the feelings are different i'm sure.
