    Sometimes it pays to be an early riser...

    That being said I am VERY excited to test out this knife. It's my first:

    1. 240 Gyuuto (therefore I am glad it runs short - my hands are smaller than most)
    2. K&S knife in general where I'll get to see how their custom handles look and feel
    3. New knife purchase with a custom saya...so if you have any that are a bit more darker I tend to like darker wood as opposed to lighter wood. Completely understand that we don't get a say through.
    4. And finally all the firsts above along with the fact that it's the first time James is offering this line.

    Now if we could only get the stars and planets to align and somehow get James to give the Watanabe line some of his love...can you imagine?

    So close to NYC I would say NYC ... but don't tell a native New Yorker!

    Just curious, are you offering other lines in the future that are NOT iron clad, James?

    Do they make honyaki, and can they do custom profile? If so, we need to talk. 😁

    Oooh, this looks really nice. I want to bite on one of these when they restock, but will be scared about missing something else you're putting up during this holiday season

    Thanks for the kind words guys. The DHL truck is still a no show for today and I sincerely hope I get my hands on a few more of these guys. I have a full line of the Akatsuki ready, but wanted to get the 240s out there first to get things going (nor I have sayas for the other profiles just yet, so can't really do the free saya promotion).

    These look mighty nice! Seem crazy thin at the edge. Need one more 240 at the moment, hoping to get a crack at a new arrival.

    James, did you just put a B2 version up on your site?
    You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful knife
    You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

    These look incredibly tempting. Just curious how tall are these puppies? From the picture it would appear that in the sakai fashion they aren't particularly tall.
    Thanks in advance
