    Got to take a good look at the knives in the day light. Definitely thinner than Shigefusa knives I have seen so far. Finish is flawless. I am always been impressed with Shigefusa fit and finish, but I think they tried extra hard this time to impress me. We went back and forth several times with these knives, so everything I requested has been met by Shigefusa. I will post most details soon - I need to bring a caliper home, but here is the weight without handles.

    270mm suji - 123g
    240mm gyuto -160g
    150mm petty - 65g

    Those are beautiful knives Marko. I absolutely love the profile of Shigs as well as the fit and finish. Hopefully I can sell some old stereo equipment I have laying around in the house so I can pick up either one of your Shigs or possibly a KU Yoshikane.

    Available Shigefusa as of 4/11/11

    A quick update what is still available:

    1 x 240mm kasumi gyuto (one bespoken knife became available)
    1 x 270mm kasumi sujihiki
    3 x 150mm kasumi petty

    I am offering them here first as this gives a buyer a chance to select a handle to his/her liking. I will keep this up for a few days, but what is left will be customized to my liking and put up on the web site.

    Prices before re-handling are comparable to JWW and include shipping. I am discounting my custom work as well as offering two options for handles - basic and premium. Please inquire for details.

    I love this article this article about Shigefusa!

    And the Shigefusa really impressed Darkhoek and me during the test of our knives. Ive used mine several times, and its truly an amazing cutter. Great offer Marko. I hope the right owners get the knives

    I agree, for me Shigefusa has the best geometry I have seen, IMHO it cuts better than a laser type guyto.

    That article states that he has made one "perfect penknife". I wish whoever owns that one would come forward! The world needs to see THAT.
