So long story cut short....I had a friend who asked me to choose and order a knife for him. He's skipped and disappeared before paying me and now I have the knife, but don't have much use for yanagi.
I had this special ordered from Jon. I paid a little bit extra to get some extra fit and finish touches on the knife such as rounded choil and spine.
Attached are pics that Jon sent me when he received the knife (it took a couple months after I ordered it). The knife is still brand new and has never even been opened. In fact, I don't even have it..I had it shipped to a package holding company so its still there right now. I will either pick it up or pay them to ship it for me.
I bought this prior to the price increase by Suisin, so I'd like to try to sell this for what I paid and not take any loss on it.
So I'd like to sell the knife for $375+shipping+paypal fees.
I asked Jon and he said that this knife, with the extra work done on it, now sells for $468.75
The knife is located around Niagara falls USA, so you can pick it up directly if that works for you.
