    This slicer just arrived. Found it on the "Bay" and had a weak impulse and an open wallet. The description is of a 240mm Yanagi Damascus knife new from old stock. It has a ton of lacquer on the blade and that will go. Going to research it a little more. Any help on the makers marks etc would be greatly appreciated.
    Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean you should wear it...

    You don't mention Masafumi, nor any other information provided by the seller. Because you are skeptical of the accuracy of the description?

    I'm also guessing that you were one of the dozen watchers of this knife too. I don't read Japanese so I can't be skeptical. Just curious what those that know on the this forum can tell me.

    My new Kato 240 wa-gyuto just arrived today from JNS! Heel to tip it's 247mm, height at heel is 53mm. It's a sexy beast—will start using it tonight. Here's a video of it I just shot:
