Kyohei Shindo 165mm Aogami #2 Bunka with Kaiso Custom Eucalyptus Handle. Brand new in box.

It pains me to sell this...but I bought one with a Jobone custom handle and am opting to keep the Jobone version. The custom eucalyptus handle from Kaiso is stunning though.

These are some of the thinnest behind the edge knives I've ever used. A relatively young and new smith, Shindo-san makes some real value lasers.

$150 CONUS Reduced $140

Nice handle. This Kyohei guy is grinding them crazy thin. ToGo has them in a different steel and got my attention. I bought a few for gift/rehandle projects (which i havent ever done) and they're sweet. I don't think any of regulars will put up with the stock handle on these- plastic and round.

I have the same bunka. I must honestly say it’s the best value knife I own- super thin bte without feeling fragile. That crunching sound when it cleanly slices through scallions… that’s what i live for!
