I have a very nice Masamoto KS 3124 (new batch) that I’m looking to sell. It comes complete with a replacement custom handle by Isaiah Schroeder as well as the original Ho handle. It also comes with the matching saya for the knife … not drilled and without a saya pin. I am not the original owner but it seems that it hadn’t seen a lot of use. It is very sharp ootb which leads me to believe that it has seen little use and has never been sharpened. The specs are:
Blade length … 261mm
Edge length … 249 mm
Depth at heel … 48 mm
Thickness (measures at spine) … 3.05mm at heel, 2.42mm mid blade, 1.74mm 1” from tip.
Weight … 206gms.
It occurs to me that the knife will make a nice “stand in” sujihiki give its relative measurements. I’m looking for $495USD shipped and insured in the USA and internationally. In Canada it would be a bit less due to the reduced cost of shipping and insurance.
New MORE REALISTIC price …. $325 USD shipped and insured to the USA and internationally. A little less in Canada.
Here is a few more pics …
Note that I’ve misplaced the nice Masamoto oiled paper so will be selling it with plain oiled paper unless I can find the nice Masamoto piece. Sorry!
… GREAT NEWS … I found the cool Masamoto oiled paper. Whatyasee in the pics is whatyaget.
