    Here's my Sugimoto.

    I am the first owner, but I bought it "New-Old Stock" and had to remove a bit of "aggressive patina" when I got it. You can just barely make out some of the really cool swirly lines in the cladding from the storage rust. While I was refurb'ing the blade with Flitz and a cotton towel, most of the faux kasumi haze was removed. Whatever they use for the haze actually seems to be painted on rather than just polished into the blade. Underneath were some pretty rough grinding marks from the factory/maker. I didn't dare try to grind them all out and polish everything back up, so it's not as pretty as it could be. I tried to get a close up of the scratches, but my camera is garbage. Hopefully you get the idea.

    The bevels are nice and flat, it's very easy to get this thing absurdly sharp. Enough that it actually gets annoying how it keeps sticking into the cutting board with the lightest touch. If I used it more, I would put on a micro bevel, but I'll leave that up to the buyer.

    Asking $260 including PayPal fees and insured shipping to the USA.

    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

    Thanks! I'm not too happy about letting it go, but I've got something special coming and I need the money.

    wyoming, closer to nowhere than somewhere.
    Dam if I had gotten to buying a cleaver I may have snagged this up. But atm 210 for something I don't know if I like the style just seems to high for me.
    Chewie's the man.

    If it was in Australia this would be very tempting, even if I already have one
