    I didn’t realize this was a thing on these knives (the KU finish). So cool

    I think this one is from 2015. It’s definitely an older one.

    ...based on what??
    The recent Blue 1 sumingashi, sharpened by Morihiro, were $720 USD. You don't even have to use Wayback machine to see those numbers either- its LITERALLY still listed on Tosho's website. And that was with an ebony handle with cream horn, which usually adds $100 USD.
    What are you basing your numbers on?


    As for OP- definitely a nice knife!
    I have a B1 KU from this batch, and even with some haphazard aftermarket alterations to the geometry by the previous owner, it still cuts so well. GLWS
