Testing the waters with this one. A very nice 300mm Watanabe kintaroame blue yanagiba with saya and a custom handle by Stefan. Polished face. The handle fits it well, and is not too small unlike many handles that come with these knives. It is made of african blackwood with blue boxelder spacers.
Been used a few times, but I have been going for longer sashimi knives in the last year or so. Needs to be used more than I do.
This is a special knife I got years ago, before the yen to dollar explosion and several steel price increases. Now the knife would be about $1000 without the handle.
