    Takobiki, Tadatsuna 180 petty and nakiri

    More interesting ones for sale as I further streamline my collection down to some core knives and my favorite oddball knives (whale knife!).
    The first is a Sakai Takayuki Tokujou 330mm takobiki in white#2 with marble ferrule. It is in like-new condition and is absolutely gorgeous. The last person to sharpen it was Dave, and I have only used it a couple times since (I have narrowed my sashimi knives down to a sakimaru and a yanagi now so the others should go to other homes). A great example of the style, and is good for scoring and slicing boneless meats as well.
    Takobiki $285 shipped CONUS

    The next one up is a Tadatsuna 180mm petty knife with saya in INOX stainless steel. A light laser petty in excellent condition.
    Petty $140 shipped CONUS

    Lastly is an interesting variation on the common 'kansai' style nakiri we are used to. This one is a Tadatsuna 160mm Kantou style nakiri. As you can see, the heel on this style is more rounded and the nose end is tall. The blade is nice and thin and cuts like a laser. White#2 steel.

    Those are all awesome looking knives!
    It's a good thing I don't need a RH takobiki, or a new petty. Great stuff!

    Yes, you should all buy the takobiki too, lol. Less than $300 shipped for a 330mm is a good no matter how you cut it.

    And god, after selling a couple, I realize this forum loves wa-petties. I got like 6 offers already.

    So Petty Sold.

    That's a steal, too bad I'm a lefty.
    Afaik this Tako should've been forged by Doi (around 2009 it's been said that he did all the yanagiba, usuba, kamagata usuba and kiritsuke forging of the Tokujou series).
