    Up for sale is a 280 mm Mert Tansu Yanigiba Honyaki in aisi w2. The handle is snake wood octagonal walrus Ivory ferrule and Mokume tip. I really don't want to sell this knife but selling this to raise funds to go on my honeymoon. It was only used once on swordfish. If I am not mistaken this is 1 of 3 yanigiba that are out in the wild.

    Is your honeymoon still going ahead? I still love this knife but the Aussie dollar is in the toilet and I cant justify 1500. GLWS!

    It is sadly postponed. Given the pandemic we are now in survival mode at the restaurant.
