First, please dismiss the date in my pics. I know it's the 28th. I didn't think I'd have time to list this until tomorrow but my plans changed and I'm not re-taking all the pics. :)

Second, in full disclosure, this is my first time selling but I have no desire to screw over my reputation or any of you. Just mentioning it in case I have any kind of hiccup. I don't expect to but wouldn't want to freak anyone out.

- Sale is for the USA.
- Price is shipped.
- Payment via Paypal. I don't even know how to switch to F&F so please don't ask.
- I reserve the right to refuse sale to anyone.
- It would be nice to post "I'll take it" in this thread but not required. Either way, details will be worked out via KKF PM.

PRICE: $105USD 95USD

This is SHARP Knife Shop's house brand:

Back when I got this the prices were quite a bit higher but I'll base this sale off the current listings on their site. It looks like the bunka is out of stock right now but the nakiri should be decent price comparison.

Height is right about 45mm. Handle is ash with a quince ferrule. Respectfully used and sharpened. I really like this knife and think this line presents a real good value. The spine is rather thick out of the handle so it is quite comfortable. The SLD is pretty resilient and the blade has a little bit more of a curvier profile than a lot bunkas so it responds well to rocking.

Are you sure this is the "stainless" version? I didn't see much on the website and see SLD and SKD (11/12) commonly misidentified at webshops.

This one also looks to have more curve than your other Bunka.

SHARP's website lists it as SLD semi-stainless. And yes, as I mentioned in the original post, this bunka does have more curve than a lot of others out there.
