Hey folks, I enjoyed using this knife but am going to sell this one and couple other Konos I don't use enough. This is the first one up. I upgraded the handle to a Hitohira Makassar Ebony one piece handle (dowel construction) from Strata. Looks great, cuts great. Knife has been sharpened a couple times and used, but no issues or problems at all. Great blade with low maintenance requirements given the performance it gives. Also, I made a custom Walnut saya for it. Not a perfect match, but a nice friction fit saya on it. These are $350 new, I'm asking $300 CONUS with upgraded handle and saya. Int'l would be $40 more.

Hard to beat the kono YSM for pure cutting performance. A complete no brainer if sanjo midweights are your thing, especially at this reduced price. Cool package too with the custom handle. GLWS!
