c-dawg's stash for sale!
Hello Everyone! It's been a while, I know!
Just wanted to say hi and check things out. I haven't been participating much in the forums, but I hope to do so once again.
I was thinking, since I do have a bunch of knives that I haven't been using, I might as well contribute to the forums by
offering a few of my knives for sale! Please take a look!
First off, is my Yoshikane Ajikiri. It is made of blue steel with a very beautiful Damascus cladding. The blue steel core
is polished to a mirror finish while retaining the 'mist' look on the cladded metal. I bought the knife a few years ago,
sharpened it, and never used it. Includes saya. $250
Here are some pics:
(I might be willing to take an offer on the yoshikane yanagi from the first post on the link above)
I've been calling this next knife 'Shigeki's Cousin' in the past, but I've been corrected. Not only was it the cousin of
Shigeki who made this knife, it's his oldest cousin and the current blacksmith for his family. It was Shigeki's master's #1
Here's JWW's write-up about Shigeki: http://japanwoodworker.com/product.asp?
The core is blue steel at RC64. Knife is fully sharpened and comes with saya with locking pin. I'll take a loss and offer
it at $230.
Murray Carter 8sun Garden Steel Kurouchi Aogami steel IPNB Chukabocho
Most of the information about this knife is covered in the link below to the post I made about this knife. I love this knife
a lot, but I haven't used it in about 2 years. It's a hell of a knife and it really performs very very well. It will come
fully shapened. $850
And now, my last offering comes with a heavy heart. It is my most prized knife:
Murray Carter Unground 8sun Miroshi, Black Ash Burl with Brushed Silver Spacers on Presentation Grade Sanora Ironwood (Fish
All prices on knives include shipping to the US continental. Please feel free to ask questions about anything and offers
will be handled on a first-come-first serve basis.

I will entertain offers on any knife I own. I might say no to some, though : P
Holy crap! Those carters are stunning!
You chould take a closer look at the Mioroshi... the Ura is fully forged (the concave that is), not ground, so it still has the kurouchi finish. Amazing work from a master. I've never seen anything else quite like it.
