could somebody with one of these lightly used Kasumi Shigs give me a high rez, in focus shot of the choil and (from the spine side) tip? my Shig has been worked hard, and while it cuts great, i'd like to see a closer to stock grind.
Mine is slightly thinner than standard shig 206 grams, standard shig is around 220grams so i don't know if it would be helpful to you? Also i only take iPhone pics, which may also not be what you are after. If you want to see them anyway let me know
There are many people who claim to be good cooks; just as there are many people who, after having repainted the garden gate take themselves to be painters.
If any one can tell me also by PM which is the price for a Shigefusa Gyuto or/and a petty I'll can understed if I can afford one of them because I'd really like to try one. Thanks
Yes I know he have one, I'm one of his follower, but I'm looking for something used and maybe cheaper
there is a shigefusa 180mm kitaeji santoku & 165mm Kakugata Nikiri at ebay right now, if anybody interesting!!

I've looked into non-English speaking/domestic-only Shig sources in Japan and would say that a normal-ish price for a wa 210 is about Y35,000 or $425. Most KKF members may not be able to buy through Japan, but based on what I've heard this is a decent price.
With Shigefusa knives prices will always very a lot because some vendors have 2 years wait and some 1 month even in Japan.
So if someone ordered 2 years ago of coarse his price will be a lot different then the one ordered 1 month ago
Shigefusa adjusted his prices about 1 year ago, so you cant have seen me raise price on his knives
