    KATO Yanagi

    This one is very special 300mm Yanagi from Yoshiaki Fujiwara

    He makes them rarely but look of it and feel is very very good
    I am very excited to get this one it looks very good much better then i expected.
    Ura side is finished paralel like on Shigefusa knives and grind is very very different then on most Yanagis as usual on Kato knives , it is also much taler knife

    I will make special handle for this one with removable Pin so you can always take handle of. So it will take some time before it will make in to my store.
    On the Tang is old writing of date and era of when this knife is made.

    Is it unusual for this type of knife to not have a Machi?
