    Ho Octogonal handle and friction saya . Beautiful match with the white horn hilt!
    With Original box.
    (Usually I wax the handle and saya and I can do it if you want but I find the whole knife very beautiful in its actual condition)

    $500 shipped worldwide with tracking number

    Kasumi-custom:

    It's like a freshly received knife from Watanabe but..

    .Without any low spots, so you can get the whole bevel on your finest stones and get a perfect uniform finish.
    .Every bit of the blade looks much more elegant than the original one (true kasumi with finger stones)
    .Extreme sharpness. This blade passes the picked hair cutting test very, very easily.
    .Nice slightly convex grind -> great cut but still tough blade.

    Great knife. I found this length very useful for a home cook, working with smaller fish or meat.
    GLWS!

    Love the harmonious look in this entirely blond wood finish
    Very good price for this level of finish
    I would have taken it if I had not already had a 24 Yanagi ... and broke my piggy bank for a few pieces of stones ;-)
    Anyone who wants to try an ultimate edge should jump on it !
    GLWS Ben !

    Absolute stunner!! Feels very cohesive with the white ferrule. I'm sure most of the folk on this forum have had a Watanabe at some point - solid, well made, highly regarded knives. Agreed with RolfK - had a Yanagi this size years ago and was perfect for home sushi nights.

    Fantastic deal for the finish. Don't sell all your hard work short Benjamin, that's basically the price getting a normal one direct from Shinichi! GLWS

    I do not understand that this knife is still there.
    I am not even sure that Shin devotes the time necessary to reach such a level of finish, even on request.
