    FS - Tadatsuna Kamagata Usuba 180mm White Steel

    I have a personal sale here, it's a kamagata style usuba.

    This came to me in poor condition. As I recall the edge was chipped out, the shinogi line was uneven and the ura (back side) had a lot of sharpening wear. I wanted it because I had the notion that once I had it back in shape I'd practice the whole daikon peeling thing but the reality is that I never have time to do anything. So this just sits hanging on my mag rack for years now and I'm thinking that I'd like to sell it and open up a slot for a Martell nakiri that I may actually use one day.

    Stats
    ....

    Maker -
    Ikkanshi Tadatsuna

    Size - 180mm
    Blade length - 165mm (cutting edge)

    Handle - Ho wood w/buffalo horn ferrule (buffalo has 2 chips at the front end - top & bottom side - see pictures for details)

    Saya - yes

    Steel - White #2

    Condition - Good/Refurbished, blade is hamaguriba and ready for the stones


    Price - $225 (shipping to CONUS included in price)


    Thanks for looking,
    Dave

    Based on the kanji on the back (一竿子忠綱 特別打) and a bit of Googling, it's a Tadatsuna in white #2.

    This is a great deal here, just the sharpening job from Dave makes this a good value and its a tadatsuna can't go wrong here. Wish I had the dough. This doesn't include a saya or does it?

    No saya price drop > $199 (CONUS shipping included)

    Correction > Saya & Box found in drawer hiding!

    No Saya Price still stands though - $199 (including shipping to CONUS)

    This knife will suit the beginner who is concerned with getting a bum usuba (very common) that they can't deal with to the seasoned professional user. It is ready to go to work and is set up for easy sharpening when the time comes. This is a deal that won't come along too often.
