    There have only been 3 or 4 of these Yanagiba ever made however this is the only Kiritsuke of its kind. Both are polished by Mr. Morimoto in Sakai.

    Here are some woodworking tools by Tasai (the chisel and Kogatana) and some flower-arranging hatchets by Takaba.

    I have no use for single bevels, but they make me reconsider my priorities..

    I'm just speechless (and that doesn't happen often). More details please, and more pictures, many more pictures! Were these a special project instigated by you (that would be the corporate 'you') or did you just snatch them up when they were made available? How did he manage to maintain such a dark etch after smoothing out the surface? And how the hell did he mirror polish the backside without dulling the etch? Ok, guess I'm not so speechless after all, but a man's gotta know

    Be well,
    Mikey

    Hi Mikey,
    These 2 knives were special orders for us. Unfortunately we know nothing about the coloring process, its a secret of the polisher. All the polisher said is that the knives are not coated in any way and the color is derived from the polish. I wish we could give you more info.

    Just now seeing these...wow. Stunners, the whole lot. Is the appearance purely aesthetic? Or is there some functional value as well?
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.
