How long is it - 270?
So, how did this happen? Did you sell off two other Shig's to fund this one? Was this a custom order? What was the lead time? Or... did you trade two other Shig's for this one f/ another owner?
Regardless, it's a beauty. Very envious.

It is 240mm, mpukas.
Huw got both of my two other Shigefusa gyutos and he holds on to yo-kasumi, and wa-kitaeji went to Rami.
This all happened before my luck struck stumbling upon this beauty from Franšois Xavier of lapassiondescouteaux.fr .
BTW, if the picture and weight is true, this one probably is a 270 with hand engraved kanji. http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/n...an/item/35061/
The 2 blades you have here specifically are on my short list to round out my collection over the next year or so, along with a stainless paring knife like an Ealy or Adam Marr.
Just to confirm, your Shig is the Kasumi right?
These are really nice man, congrats.
Sara's packaging always portends good things.
I'm developing a fondness for green boxes. This is the third.
Older and wider..
Also delivered this week is the perfect GF knife. (Now I just have to find the perfect GF...)

Whoah, that's a shiny Shig santoku.
It's raining shigs in down under .. It was painful to not have a shig gyuto after seeing so many threads about it .Well after maxims discount I grabbed a Kasumi 270 gyuto , now I get to talk about the clouds on the cladding or complain about the reactivity now
On a side note the handle doesn't seem to be mounted as well as 210 mioroshi deba I had briefly , but I can live with that

I thought for a moment that you were going to grab the BIG one. Nice score
