That's a heck of a suji! Wish I had the goose that laid golden eggs!
Here's another friendly reminder of what is here, ready for you, as a Christmas present to yourself.
Rodrigue 290mm Suji
The steel is 1084/15N20 Damascus, forged by Pierre, and HT'd to 61hrc. The handle is stabilized blackwood, nickel/silver and black buffalo horn for the ferrule.
You can find the knife here: http://sharpandshinyshop.com/collect...-damascus-suji . Free shipping to any members!
As a last chance (hopefully) before Christmas sale, this one is going down to $1000, plus actual shipping cost! If anyone is interested, let me know as soon as possible, so we can get this in the mail, and maybe to you by Christmas! Canadian buyers, especially in Ontario, this would definitely make it under the tree, if you order today!
