Jon, those are some very special knives.
ust 2 of these Kejiro Doi Hayate Yanagiba in stock... they come with ebony octagon handles, a ho wood saya, kiri (paulownia) wood display and storage box, certificate of authenticity, and, if you ask, free sharpening by me. These were forged by well known and now retired blacksmith Kejiro Doi and sharpened by equally well respected and also retired Yukinori Oda, former head of the sharpeners association. These are not being made anymore by these two craftsmen and are thus extremely rare. Get them while they last.
