What's up with these spendy Togiharus from Korin?
Here's the description from the site:
"Togiharu Limited Edition knives are hand forged in Seki City by Hiromune Takaba, a renowned cutlery master. Takaba-san is most known for his katana, which typically sell for upwards of $20,000. The handles are crafted from a variety of materials including petrified wood, stag antler and mammoth tusk by Koji Hara. Hara-san is one of the top knife craftsmen in Japan."
And the prices are from $1,660 to $2,600. If you go to GILT Taste Korin sells a couple of Togiharu sujis with stag antler and petrified wood handles.
