    I like that knife. I'm curious to see your responses. I read the description to mean that it is not clad? Wonder if it could be had with a black handle?

    Yes, I think you should buy it and let us know...

    Looks pretty thin and light for a western. Handle appears to be of good size by pictures. I gathered it's mono as well. Could be an interesting knife.

    Yes it does... I like the western deba and honesuki; something tells me mono-blue steel would be pretty rugged.

    I sent him an email over eBay about that knife a little while back to get some more information on it. He said the spine to edge length was 46mm and the hardness should be about 63HRC. I would have picked it up in a heartbeat if it was a little bit taller, but that's just my preference. Looks like a great knife!

    I think a whole load of people have been looking at that knife and wondering about it but haven't pulled the trigger. I've bought a load of stuff from BluewayJapan and have nothing but positives to say about Keiichi. If it was a 270 I might bite
