    OK to answer a further question, the 35mm refers to blade height at the heel (I thought that was the question). The spine thickness at the heel is ~4mm. Cutting edge length is 316mm without the machi.

    Because I don't need both this knife and its sister sakimaru takohiki. Both are Konosuke Blue#1 330mm with ebony handles, but the sakimaru was the first custom single bevel knife I ever got back in 2007. I am not a professional chef, and this knife deserves to get more use. It's in better condition than the older sakimaru, and I can't even say that the sakimaru performs better. I've had over a dozen sashimi knives (most gone to other homes already) and this may be overall the best yanagi, although not the most expensive. And it is still like-new.
    Last year I made the decision to sell off a lot of my huge collection for others to enjoy, and consolidate what I have into a smaller set. The only sashimi knives I have right now are the sakimaru and this yanagi.

    You would have to truly realize the massive amount of knives this guy has to truly understand. It is a good knife at a good deal.

    Any chance of shipping it north of the border?

    Also, am I an Idiot for thinking of buying a 330 as my first Yanagiba?

    I've shipped to Canada half a dozen times, as long as it's by USPS it shouldn't be a problem. Many professional chefs I've watched use 300-330mm (often times they get shorter as they are sharpened down over many years), so I wouldn't say it would be stupid. 270s are used more if you really don't have the space, not necessarily because bigger ones are more unwieldy.

    Happy north-of-the-border recipient of knives from Bishamon right here Jeez, if you've only sent up half a dozen times, then I think I account for 1/3 of that...
