I will post photos in the thread below. I have a few great knives that I just don't get to use enough. I like them all. I'll be posting some more in another post too. Discounts on multiples. Price includes shipping CONUS. International I will put $20 USD towards shipping.

AkifusaGyuto$200>175SRS-1524547216Pakkahttps://zknives.com/knives/kitchen/ktknv/akifusa/akifusag240.shtml

This was my first JK. SRS-15 takes a great edge and this knife has a good taper, before they lost that. Original owner, 15+ years, sharpened several times but never taking a lot of steel off.
I have had this one over a decade. It has been sharpened several times and the blade sanded. Original owner.​
ShunKiritsuke$225>210Blue #2 - Stainless clad25545240Pakkahttps://www.knivesshipfree.com/shun-knives-shun-blue-kirisuke-10-vg0008/

This is one of the few Shun's that I think is worth getting. Has some surpising convexity to the grind. It's stainless clad Blue 2 that takes a good edge. A great knife really. Original owner, sharpened twice.
This has been a fantastic knife. Excellent cutter and takes and holds a solid edge. Real slicey. Original owner.​
Miyazaki KajiyaTsubaki$150>SOLDBlue 2 - Iron Clad18059185Burnt Oakhttps://knifewear.com/products/miya...gami-stainless-kurouchi-tsuchime-hakata-180mm

This was my first Bunka and their great. Miyazaki san is a talented smith. The cladding finish is quite durable. Original owner and sharpened twice.
My first bunka and I am sad to see it go. It has been sharpened a couple of times. His Blue 2 has been a joy to use. Original owner​

Tanaka does a great job with Ginsan and his grinds are great performers. Great all arounder with good F&F. KNS purchased original owner and only touched up.
I love the grind on this one. Great all around knife that does everything quite well. Original Owner​
Shinko SeilanGyuto Kiritsuke Ktip$185>SOLDAogami Super - iron clad24048218Ebony Wood and Hornhttps://knivesandstones.us/collecti...r-gyuto-kiritsuke-ktip-240-mm-by-shiro-kamo-2
This is a great knife, I just have a lot of carbon k-tips. Shiro Kamo's fit and finish is excellent at this price point. His AS HT is solid. This has the upgraded K&S ebony handle to bring back the balance. Original owner, never sharpened.
This one is thin and a little flexy. I got an ebony handle to move the balance back a little. Original owner​
White Koi Workshop/SoldNakiri$400-SOLD!!Sandvik18070Maple and BrassDaniil SmirnoffDaniel is a talented knife maker in Latvia. I saw his work and had to get one. I am not a nakiri guy and I thought this would change me. This is a spirit brother to my Nordquist.
MailletSPFBunka$280SPFVintage Wrought over 26c3 SPF17550148Burnt Holm Oakhttps://www.simonmaillet.com/collections/knives-available/products/bunka-175mmSimon Maillet
I had intended to get this to do some stone work, but I decided against going down that rabbit hole. It has perfectly flat bevels and some great antique wrought cladding. I got this from @ok_mode. It is an excellent cutter but I have a ton of bunkas.​

I am the 2nd owner and bought this from another forum member. It has only been touched up, never sharpened. I have no problem keeping this one because it is awesome. I just have too many and deliberately decided not to "connect" with it.
Takeshi SajiWhat else is there to say? This was about the thinnest way to try Saji's work and it did not disappoint. Shibata + Saji? Forget about it. It's a beaut and a performer to boot.

I got this from another forum member. He had thinned it down and it cuts like a demon. This is the way to do this bunka. I also got a good deal so I am passing it on.​

Original owner. This is a 2023 Mazaki with a nice F&F, softened spine and choil. This has the upgraded KNS ebony handle too. This one feels GREAT in the hand. Another one that I am ok not selling. It's a nice goldilocks knife.

Shigeki Tanaka's ginsan is excellent. Highly recommend that knife, I love mine. It's a great do-it-all midweight that had better food release than you'd suspect.
 
Ok, Adding a couple of more. They're getting sweet.

I am the first owner of the Mazaki. I got it from KnS and it's a 2023 Mazaki. It is carbon steel clad. I upgraded the handle to their Ebony one. Great knife, just redundant.

I am the 2nd owner of the Honyaki that bought here from another forum member. It is an absolute performer and so nimble. I haven't gelled with it deliberately. I will probably regret this one, but decisions must be made. It's got a nice Walkschliff grind. There some scratching near the spine about 5/6 of the way down, nothing major and would probably come right out. Not much of a patina has formed, it isn't super reactive.

100% agree. It's such a great one. I was trying it out and expecting to churn it, but it stayed with me for a while. I would be happy to keep it. His ginsan and grinds are great.
