    $160 here, so...yeah? About the same as getting it from SLT with an employee discount.

    I bought this knife (7-inch) for the exact same price, except it also came with a crappy cutting board:



    Your's seems like a better deal, but knowing what I know now I would put my money towards a custom job...

    I do like the Myabi Birchwood series, as far as production knives go. My SLT is out of them though.

    Atleast that little shun has a better profile than the regular models.

    Not bad, although I hate the handles on the kaizen knives. I do like the miyabi fusions though.

    The Kaizen came out at that price, so I think it's as low as they can go.
    Nice knives....
    That Shun of yours looks good too, actually.

    I bought several of those Miyabis as Xmas gifts, at the same price point. Nice steel. Comfortable handle. Not much taper; can seem a touch thick at the tip....
