As some here know I recently acquired a Hinoura Tsukasa Unryu-Mon/River Jump Nakiri 165 from the local classifieds but can't really afford to keep it. Although I'm the second owner It's been never used and still in its original packaging. Only thing to note is a small black mark in the handle that is shown in one of the pictures but it's barely noticeable and there is a good chance people will re-handle this anyways. In my possession it's a Drawer Queen and gives me equal parts of joy and pain so I will let it go to buy other knives I will actually use. The clouds flow pattern is as beautiful as it gets and I'm sure it will make someone very happy, I can't stop looking at it!
It retails for about $1100 and I'm asking $875 shipped to Canada (will have preference) or would split shipping otherwise.
The specs can be found here where the knife comes from:
Steel: Shirogami (White carbon) Steel #2
Handle: Octagon Magnolia wood and water buffalo horn collar
Measurements made by me on this one
Handle length: 128 mm
total length: 310 mm
Edge length: 160 mm
Height at the heel: 50 mm
Some pics (although I suck at taking pics and it doesn't make justice to the knife):
