    WTB Old Model Masamoto Sohonten KS3124 Gyuto 240mm

    The profile is exactly the same for old and new. The side by side comparison of the two examples I have only show a small difference in terms of grind where old has a bit more convex and also better distal taper. Everything else is identical.

    Thank you for posting the photos. I’m happy to state that these are absolutely definitely not Ashi honyakis. I am absolutely with your guess of Shiraki hamono.

    @Corradobrit1 and @danemonji , it would help if you could post photos of the others here (just photos), in case anyone doesn’t know what we are talking about and may be thinking of bidding

    Fake Ashi Honyaki Sold

    Ha! In all seriousness, Ittosai Kotetsu are a proper quality shop and what I have seen from them has been most excellent. So if this is an actual Ittosai Kotetsu ( I have stopped blindly trusting chiseled kanji after seeing how easily one can get whatever one wishes chiseled on a blade), and...

    Fake Ashi Honyaki Sold

    This auction finished and it seems like the seller didn’t manage to massage the final price as high as they wanted. It has now been relisted for 200k JPY. The attempts to con the knife enthusiasts continues....

    Another false listing, falsely advertising this blade as an Ashi honyaki has popped up on auction

    Fake Ashi Honyaki Sold

    I’ve always given full video once-overs to all my buyers with everything I’ve sold (think the Steve gamache stuff but better!) for that exact reason - to give the buyer every assurance that the blade is exactly as I’ve described it. This is of course not possible when buying on auction or...

    Yes, Ashis are significantly more than 2k USD, which is probably why the buyer got duped into thinking he/she is getting a bargain and jumped on this one. I know it's always the case that buyer should be aware and do their research; However I am hoping that by bringing issues like this to light...

    Fake Ashi Honyaki Sold

    There is definitely a great deal of tinkering going on. There are staged auctions, then there are auctions being cancelled at the last minute because the price wasn’t high enough, then there is the case that the same auction item being privately offered to people while the auction is still...
