    Thanks, guys.

    This is a 300 mm kitaeji yanagiba. I haven't posted other knives that I've bought (although I will post the 270 Gesshin Hide Yanagiba) because the other knives that I've bought are somewhat readily available and I don't care to necessarily show what I've bought.

    But, I decided to purchase a Shigefusa Kitaeji Yanagiba last year after talking with a number of people, and, because Iizuka-san is getting older and production is sporadic. These really are amazing looking knives in person. I was actually quite shocked.

    I'll likely not use this knife for a while though. I just purchased that 270 Gesshin Hide Yanagiba which I'll be using as my primary yanagiba. (That knife is badass. Jon let me use his once and I was totally hooked.)

    Schanop - I don't have the other one yet.

    I'm definitely now more interested in single bevel knives made by certain makers before they stop making knives. After learning from Jon how to take care of single bevel knives and sharpen them, I've begun to appreciate them more and more. I also wanted to purchase a couple of Jin knives this year, including a 300 mm yanagiba this year, but, unfortunately, it looks like they'll have to wait for the time being.
