Our something special is finally up for sale... check it out here:
Tsukasa 300mm White Steel Enryu Kurouchi Damascus Yanagiba

We also have some other knives (made by Hinoura-san and his son)... you can find them here:
Hinoura Knives

Anyways, back to the yanagiba... we ordered this knife over a year ago, when we first met Hinoura-san and his son. This year, when we visited him again, he had the knife finally ready for us. He told us he made it a few times until he was happy with it. We've only got one of them, so once its gone, its gone. So, without further adieu, here are some pictures:

Jon... I hate you... just saying... (wheres that darn CC...)

I just love that knife and I'm not a damascus fan... if cash was not an issue that puppy would be sold... and if I didn't think my wife would shoot me... I'd buy it anyway...

That takes craftsmanship to a whole 'nother level. Do knifemakers in Japan ever become Living National Treasures?

I felt like I cheated on my wife when I saw that knife. Jon's the Larry Flint of the knife interwebs.

That is amazing. If I was into yanagibas, I would begin selling my possessions until I had enough dough to buy it. Luckily for my wallet, they're not my thing.

I tried to buy that knife but PayPal kept refusing the transaction, giving some strange error message about me being a broke fry cook. Then it laughed at me and arbitrarily froze my account so I can't buy cigarettes.

If you took payment in the form of one of my kidneys we might be able to work something out, unfortunately paypal doesn't deal in human organs.

I would love that knife, any way we can work out a layaway plan???? Should only take me about 2 years to safely afford it, but it would be worth the wait! That knife is absolutely stunning!!

I am so very glad that, as kickassingly beautiful as that knife is, I do not hear the siren call. That's not to say Jon doesn't have something else to dangle in front of me and my wallet ;)

Love the visual texture and sheer coolness of this particular knife though!

I was lucky enough to see this one in person, and it is extraordinary. Truly.
