    Here is one that is very rare !!!
    15 years old Shigefusa 130mm hunting knife, steel is very clouded like on damaskus you can not see it on the picture.
    From the looks it did not look as much, but in use that is truly amazing hunting knife !!
    Grind is like on the sword very convex and can take a lot of beating. It holds forever sins i got it 3 month ago i still did not touch it up or sharpen it at all and stil it is razor sharp !
    If you can get one in Japan old stock they run from 80 000 yen and up

    Did you stain that saya? It matches the ironwood handle perfectly for being mystery wood!

    Got something new for my self

    I asked for new Mushroom knife and here what i got:

    From Shigefusa Son, this one is just perfect i never seen a knife with such perfect grind period !! I dont even know how he did it but its just perfect very thin behind the edge but still very robust and strong knife.
    Just feel perfect in my hand. It is made 15 years ago.
