Got this knife from Watanabe a few months ago but am not using it much. It is a custom blade as I requested it with a slightly taller heel height of 35mm to make it basically a single bevel petty. The finish is very rustic as I asked for a hammer finished kurouchi blade. I have initially sharpened it and it saw some use but not a lot. There is a slight chip in the cutting edge from hitting the vice in my workshop after sharpening but it is very minor, doesn’t really affect performance in any way and will be gone after the next one or two sharpenings. The knife is made of white#2 with iron cladding. The handle is octagonal burnt chestnut. It’s not the most beautiful handle out there but the very slim size fits the blade well and gives a little extra knuckle clearance. I‘m not at home at the moment so pictures and detailed specs will follow later today. For now here is the link to my post in the newest knife buy thread: https://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/index.php?posts/605623/ The knife cost me about 350€, I am looking for 300€ (~335$) including shipping in Europe, for international I will cover the first 15$ (usually that’s more than 50% depending on your location). It will ship fully insured in a box which is not the original one as that one was really crappy and I threw it away. For any questions just contact me anytime.
