    in the meantime and as i can't post in the B/S/T section, if anyone has one of the following wa-gyutos to sell (either 240 or 270), please send me a PM:
    - watanabe pro
    - heiji
    - masamoto ks
    - konosuke white #2
    - konosuke fujiyama white #2

    i am definitely interested in one of marko tsourkan's knives, but i am considering to make a wa-handle myself (just for the experience of doing so), and i would need a blade for that, a used one.

I was also surp[ised to learn that while a lot of the tradtionally made japanes knives are forged to thickness and taper, they are not forged to shape.
    My knowledge of honyaki and bladesmithing in general is severlly limited.
    Here's a vid f/ Murray Carter on his 2010 Japan tour, where he visited Mr. Shiraki. At 12:00 he talks about how a honyaki blade is made.

    You definitely will not regret it. I am waiting patiently for mine to come up. Now I just have to get my project with Mario figured out.
