Hey all. Well I'm looking to buy my first yanagiba and I've been looking at Sakai Yoshiharu sold by bluewayjapan. It would be the 270 model. Wondering what others think about this for a first time use. I also have to mention that I'm a lefty so for the price it is very hard to pass up. Sine this would be my first yanagi I'm not looking to shoot the moon and figure that if I do end up messing it up a little I wouldn't be that dishearten at it. Also if anyone else might have an alternative I would be happy to hear them to. Thanks again.
