    Help Please

    Hi all,

    This is my first time posting on this forum!
    Really enjoying reading all the threads so far!

    Was wondering if someone would be able to help me with this knife.
    Want to find out what it is to see if it is worth restoring.

    Look forward to finding out what it is!

    Cheers,

    I love hearing the knives' Kanji pronounced in Chinese it gives a whole different ambiance.

    The kanji says: "Kikusui Kinsei HonWarikomi", where kikusui is the name, kinsei means 'humbly made' and honwarikomi is 'real warikomi'
    I can't find your knife on their website, but the prices on these knives don't suggest they are worth a lot of dough. However, they seem to be more interested in selling Mouzoutou, which are imitation swords, and look pretty COOOL!!!

    Unknown Yanagi

    Hello All,

    I purchased this left handed 270mm yanagiba used from ebay awhile back. It's unusual, to me at least, in that it has a copper ferrule on the octagonal handle. I've seen plenty of older knives with the brass ferrule, but never anything octagonal. Can anyone help shed some light on the kanji?




    Thanks!

    I can't recall as it was some time ago, but they weren't a regular seller of knives. Just had the one used knife for sale at the time
