This one has been chilling in the drawer. Bought this one and was so impressed upon initial inspection that I immediately bought the blue#1 version. I have been using that one. The blue #2 for sale is BNIB. I did notice a tiny black speck. I don’t think it’s anything to worry about, but I put it in the the pictures. I touched it you can’t feel any difference it is smooth. $550 shipped CONUS only. These come with nice ebony handles that put the balance point at a better place with these Mazakis IMO. Classy and elegant and fit these blades really well IMO.

Can’t quite see it in the last pic, but is this a new profile one?
So I got these in the fall of 2020. I believe they are the profile before the latest one, but I’m not 💯 percent sure. I don’t have any of the newest ones. K&S said the newest ones were in December 2020. I think the profile is in between the latest one and the previous one. They seem a little more ksish but perhaps not as extreme as the newest ones.

ok dope, I knew it looked sorta different. I have a Blue2 Maz too, it’s the profile right before this one, when he first started doing the hon-sanmai. Wanted to know if it was actually different because I don’t want to pick up the same one haha.

Yeah, another thing that makes me think these are a little different. Is that my blue #1 comes with a saya. The newest ones they say that can't make a saya for. And my blue #1 and blue #2 are nearly identical. You would be hard pressed to find some differences. This is a tricky one for me that I may withdraw. My brain says let it go, but my heart says otherwise.

Do you have specs?
Hey, I’m away from the knife on vacation, so I can’t grab specs. I started to take some before I left. Here are a few to give you an idea. About 7.5 mm coming out of the handle. About 6mm at the heel, about halfway around 3mm, and about an 1inch out 1.1 and the tip keeps getting thinner, thin tip, strong distal taper overall. It’s about 53.5 mm at the heel. All the measurements on the spine I did by eye without a ruler, just digital calibers. For example I didn’t measure halfway I just did about halfway on the knife and I didn’t measure an inch out but approximated.
