    Well, 2019 was a big year for my knife purchases. Now it’s time to let some go. All very nice knives, I’m just trying to keep my collection to a reasonable size that (mostly) fits in my block.


    For now, shipping only offered to U.S. addresses. Knives will be shipped through USPS military/diplomatic mail, and will take roughly a week and a half to reach you.


    The following knives are offered. All prices include U.S. shipping and PayPal fees. Actual measurements included.



    296mm Masamoto KK (White #2 steel) Yanagiba with Anton Kudris (Icanhzchzbrgr) handle.

    I had talked myself into the justification for buying a yanagi, but then decided I can get by with my suji. BNIB, knife has never touched food or stones. I was going to rehandle this knife with this gorgeous handle made by Anton. I believe it’s made of maple burl, with nicely marbled horn ferrule and butt cap, nickel silver spacers. Super comfortable heart-shaped (hybrid octagonal/oval) handle.

    Heel to tip length: 296mm

    Heel height: 36mm

    Weight: 226g

    Asking $400 for the knife and handle, would prefer to sell together. Comes in original box, with ho wood saya.

    217mm Yu Kurosaki Shizuku Gyuto, SG2/R2 steel, western micarta handle.

    The best-looking knife I own. Super comfortable, nicely curved western handle that looks and feels great. I’m the second owner, previous owner used to prep one meal. I used it lightly. Never sharpened. This one’s a bit small for my taste, and I have a couple other in almost the same size, so I’m letting this one go. I think this is about a year old. Kurosaki now seems to make his knives thinner than he did a few years ago. Great cutter and in-hand feel.

    Heel to tip length: 217mm

    Heel height: 50mm

    Weight: 187g

    Asking $350. Comes in original box.

    152mm Mazaki Stainless Petty, ginsanko core steel, d-shaped ho and horn handle

    Very light use from previous owner, I only used this for a few test cuts. Received as part of a trade package to make up a difference in trade value. I’ve decided my Watanabe/Takamura petty combo takes care of my needs in this size.

    Heel to tip length: 152mm

    Heel height: 34mm

    Weight: 85g

    Asking $160, comes in original box.

    Price drops:
    Masamoto Yanagi, BNIB, now $300
    Mazaki petty, like new, now $140

    I think these are good prices for these knives, so will give it some time before dropping further.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for looking!

    In response to a question, yanagi is from Masamoto Sohonten (maker of the KS line), NOT Masamoto Tsukiji.

    Masamoto 300 Yanagi now $280.
    Mazaki stainless petty now $130.

    Wow, what a gorgeous yanagiba! If I hadn’t bought a Toyama last year, I’d be all over this!!! GLWS.

    I recall a thread where someone called the KK yanagiba a definite keeper!

    Masamoto yanagi now $250 shipped to the U.S. Worldwide, add $15. Still brand new, never used. If it doesn't sell, I'm probably gonna start using it.

    Mazaki ginsanko petty now $110 shipped to the U.S. Worldwide, add $15.

    @pgugger if you're still looking for a yanagiba, there's absolutely no way you'll find a better deal.

    Thank goodness. I bought a yanagiba before seeing this post and was really kicking myself for not seeing it earlier
