    I don't mid people selling seconds, but the price seems steep. Sure is hella ugly.

    Coulda been a contender with a kiritsuke tip.

    Or a real Nakiri, depending on how big it is. Seriously, take your thumb, partially block your view to see it as a Nakiri and it looks good. Sure, the stamp is awfully far up if you do this, but still.

    It's only been up since Saturday. Two other high grades with custom handles in the same price range have sold - a funayuki and a wabocho.

    I have a hard time faulting someone for trying something different. Especially after making thousands of knives.
    Beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder and I'm sure there's a cross-eyed person out there somewhere who will think that this is beautiful, or at least ugly enough to be interesting.

    But, I have to agree, his would have looked infinitely better with a kiritsuke tip from tip to spine like the little banno kobunka that Takeda makes:

    I had a hard time letting this one go. So yes, I agree.
