    Doi Birthday Knives - Curious about owners

    For Doi sans 80th birthday he produced 20 300mm yanis, ten blue, ten white, five of each wa, five of each western. I was just wondering if forum members were owners of these knives (other than me) and whether you still use these knives and if you think they have appreciated in value.

    Yes, they came from Korin like 3-4 years ago when Jackie was still there.

    Hello salt, here's my wound

    Then I got one... Its a 270mm Keijiro Doi Hayate... Blue steel. Its got ironwood handle and its numbered... got a nice saya and pin! I would need to look at the number.... Ill try to get some pictures when I have a chance...

    If i remember correctly.. He made 20 or 30 of each.. Including some sakimaru takobiki and some kensaki yanagi, maguro and kiritsuke. I was looking at the web site and there are still some for sale... I do not know if they are still the limited edition.

    Not sure about these details... Maybe someone can clarify....

    It came in a box.... Ive still got the whole kit... I thought it would be a nice thing to get this master craftsman's work at its finest back when they came out..

    I think the world of Keijiro Doi and his work... These knives are flawless!
    I was very impressed with these knives...

    Customfan, that sounds a little fishy. Better send it to me for authentication.
