    You will need to keep an eye on the knife BST forum. Please take a moment to read the BST rules (found as a sticky in the BST forum page).

    Is there a particular reason that you are interested in this particular knife? Similar performance can be had at a much lower price point.

    Curiosity really. My current knives already perform better than my skill deserves.

    Cuz skills can be practised but some knives won't be available for long.

    You will need 50 on topic posts or supporting membership to be able to starting a BST thread.

    FWIW, Valgard is selling a short Shig gyuto if you are interested.

    How many active members here? I feel that the forum could use some more active posts. I find myself relying on older posts for the most part, but many info. are out of date.

    For example, following a link only to find out the knives are sold out or no longer being carried by said vendor etc.

    I think that's just the way of it. Many knives are only made/supplied in small batches so sell out rather quickly.
