I don't need one and I can't afford one, but I really would like to have one.... Just wondering: Is the length measured from the machi or is that the blade length? I never remember who measures how.

:aloha:

P.S. Thanks for the smiley, Dave :)

heiji measures from the heel normally, but for knives with machi, makers measure from the handle. This one actually runs about 315 from the handle, but 295 from the heel.

I spotted that one on your sight when I was looking at the others...man o man that's one hell of a knife! Any pro would be well advised to jump all over that one and I hope they do B/C I'm having a hard time not buying it myself...hope it's sold by the end of the month
