Can someone please tell me my price is not reasonable enough for a new shigefusa? Seems like not much people looking for kasumi shigefusa yanagiba at the moment. I compare to other seller post, I thought shigefusa is very famous here, try to get fund but seems like not an easy job to do it ๐Ÿ˜ฅ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I'd guess it's just that it's a yanagiba. That's a pretty specialized blade to go into for the "2nd best kind of Shig" (kasumi) especially from an outsource brand. If this was a kitaiji or any kind of gyuto, it would have sold in seconds.

I see, unlucky the one I have is not kitaeji๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข Maybe I was in the bad timing to sell this knife while not many people looking for shigefusa kasumi yanagiba. I guess I just have to be patient until potential buyer pop up. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

It's still a Shig, it should sell at some point. I have no idea what a fair price for it would be - given that such things are market-driven anyway.

Looking at various websites, I see 300m kasumi shigs listed new around 800 to 1000 mostly (there are a couple listed at 500-600 but since all of these are out of stock, those are probably just very old listings). So your price is probably around reality.

It is rebranded as well so it probably plays a factor.

I heard from a Taiwan master grate collector, the guy own heeps of rarest knives told me Shigefusa use to OEM to Kiya brand, & Kiya shigefusa actually have better F&F control than original shigefusa, As Kiya brand selling higher price to they customer. I think to those whoโ€™s know the history will know the Kiya shigefusa .๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

Arizona has had a few for pretty cheap. I almost picked them up because Shig kasumi at that price....but I have no purpose for a yanagi and I feel like most don't unless they make a lot of sushi at home or work at a sushi restaurant

It would be hard to imagine consistently better F&F than Shig. They are pretty good at that.
Iโ€™m not sure about that as well, only thing I know is my rarely to see Kiya brand shigefusa, I guess just have to wait until someone whoโ€™s looking for yanagiba for collection ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

If you havenโ€™t use yanagiba to slicing, you canโ€™t tell the difference between single & double bevel, is totally different joyful when using yanagiba๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž
