    beautiful Watanabe 300mm Yanagiba Kintaro Ame Ku with Saya

    $1100 incl. Paypal and shipping worldwide ( if you prefer an alternative to Paypal or if you live in Eu, we can talk ;-) )

    This is the one from my avatar.
    Zero low spots, top geometry
    White#1 with beautiful kintaro ame
    Kuruchi
    Octogonal handle
    Friction saya
    Perfect ura
    Mirror polished ura + KU+ perfect geometry =it won‘t rust that soon
    very, very tough blade but amazingly sharp
    Finger stone polish but this kintaro ame gives the best results by sharpening on benchstones. The optic lives litterally from unperfect polish, the damascus lines sparkle wonderfully.
    I got great results on any stones, even on synth but my best bet is a middle to hard Jnat. Don‘t be affraid to scratch the blade!
    It won‘t damage it (only surface) and will rather look good.
    Funnest knife to polish I‘ve had.

    Pictures are coming.

    Already withdrawn the sale twice in the past but this time it is really for sale ;-)

    That a beautiful knife! Very impressive stonework.

    And with your photography skills I think you could sell a rusty nail!

    Thanks ;-)

    ..even if I feel my finish is "wrong" on this blade. I should have done a dirty, don't-give-a-fck-style, creased aluminium foil surface..

    Yanagiba en gyuto are apples and oranges I'm afraid! The knife looks incredible though.

    @nutmeg would you consider trades or cash only?

    God, if this was left handed I'd buy it and start over getting rid of others.

    Wow, that is an epic knife. I'd offer you a Tansu damasteel gyuto as a trade but I doubt it's something you'd be interested in.

    Hi, not sure if this is what you like, but hey if you don't try...your knife is for sale some time.

    I like Wat a lot and have some knives of him. To try a white #1 and a large yanagi is tempting for me. So are you open for a trade of a Wat yanagi + cash.
    My yanagi knife is a Blue #2 with a 240mm blade, with Ho wood octo handle and a nice white buffalo horn. Including a matching original saya and the box of Wat. So a complete package.

    It is used very little in a small household, not seen any heavy stones. Good as new I would say - certainly with your impressive grinding skills! :)

    I live in the EU - the Netherlands. So easy to deal. (I've also seen your add in the German kochmalscharf forum).
    Anyway please let me know, I can send more details or pictures if you like,
    best regards, Rolf

    Hello, I apologize in advance if it's inappropriate for me to reply to this thread since the deal is done. I'm new to this whole thing but I had some questions about the polish of a knife like this. (Please correct me if I'm using the wrong terminology as well.)

    The polished parts of the blade are beautiful, but are the little holes on the kanji side of the blade not considered to be like pitting? Does the unevenness of the surface negatively affect the performance or value of the knife at all? Thank you!
