    I bought this knife out of curiosity during JNS last sell out when Maxim sold a lot of old stock Sakai knives.

    It’s this one here:

    As I‘m not planning to do katsuramuki or any other traditional Japanese stuff I don’t really have any use for it but maybe someone else will like and use it.

    I sharpened the blade after receiving it and did my best to make it look somewhat pretty. It sharpens easily and takes a very keen edge. There are some low spots so I had to use fingerstones and it came out passable but don’t expect a perfect finish. The Ura was of course only touched by a finisher. Apart from that I only used it twice to cut some vegetables.

    Specifications:
    Cutting edge steel: white #2
    Cladding: soft iron
    Blade length (handle to tip): 155mm
    Handle length: 120mm
    Cutting edge length: 140mm
    Blade height at heel: 42.5mm
    Spine at heel: 3.4mm
    Spine at tip: 2.6mm
    Weight: 130g

    I think the initial price was a little too high so I would like to ask 100€ (112$) for the knife plus 13€ shipping in Europe and 25$ internationally.

    Someone asked me about the handle. It’s a D shape with an extra ridge on the ferrule which feels very nice in hand.

    The knife is still available.
    Price drop to 90€ (102$) shipped in Europe or 117$ internationally.
    If you are interested but think the price is not right feel free to make an offer.

    Also if you are interested in buying this one and the Yanagiba I have listed I will offer you a package deal for 200€ including shipping in Europe (245$ to the rest of the world)
