    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

    Send Maxim at Japanese Natural Stones a pm, he should be able to tell you what you should expect to pay for one. He has a 210 kasumi gyuto in stock right now.

    Yes I know he have one, I'm one of his follower, but I'm looking for something used and maybe cheaper

    I haven't tracked things too closely but my impression is prices are going up on JNS - maybe 20% recently. On the other end of the price spectrum, I just checked aframes and their listed price for a wa 210mm kasumi gyuto is $338. Of course you're unlikely to ever see one listed as being in stock there. But miracles can occur, and I know a member who found a knife there after watching for several months.

    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.

    Nope not really
    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

    sure, go ahead and see what you can do, if you don't mind.
