    Can you help identify this yanagiba?

    I bought this knife years ago and have almost never used it -- ended up much preferring a chef's knife to a yanagiba. Now that I've got a renewed interest in Japanese knives, I'm curious to know what it is, as I've forgotten long ago. If I were to sell it, is it worth much? It's a 9" in excellent condition, with the caveat being that the knife has sat in a knife block in my kitchen unused for...maybe 20 years. ;-)

    Can anybody shed any light on this?

    Thanks much!

    Wow, thank you!

    Great to know what I have...Looks like I'll be making room for a new gyuto in my knife block! ;-)

    Thanks again!
