Kind of a catch, refinish, rehandle and release here because I’m on the books for too many customs. A really nice mid weight Sakai knife. Feels like a Tetsujin with better distal taper and a slightly thinner tip, and I think the only way to get Tanaka x Myojin without shelling out for a Kono FM.

I got it without a handle and added this nice chatoyant rosewood. Wasn’t able to get all the scratches out from previous use (detailed in pics) but has a very handsome and functional finish. The core steel/cladding line has quite an interesting look and I’m not sure if this is because it was etched by the previous user. I only used it for one meal and sharpened it once after refinishing with no loss in height.

Specs:
231x49mm
4.2cm spine tapering to <1mm by tip
188g with current handle

Selling for 465$ > 450$ > 425$ > 399$ shipped CONUS, but we can talk discount if you don’t want the handle.

Some blemishes I felt weren’t worth going down to 60 grit to chase:
