    Knife ID/Info

    Hi All,



    Picked up this 9.5" Yoshihiro yanagiba for sharpening/testing from a coworker. I assume it is Yoshihiro, since my kanji is severely non existent
    Anyhow, is it really Yoshihiro? And if yes does anyone know model/steel etc?

    The story was that his relative picked it up somewhere, supposedly 1000$ knife, but got a deal for 250$ ish... Fishy if you ask me, but whatever...

    Looks to me like this kasumi knife: http://www.amazon.com/YOSHIHIRO-Shir.../dp/B006IH83ZI

    I would assume it's white #2 but could not say for certain.

    Yep. If they paid $250, they overpaid by about $100. I would be surprised to find out it is White #1, so yeah, White #2.
