Good god insanity level.
Are you self employed?
My brain hurts looking at that polish
Wah ..... That's beautiful
Does he know how to use it?
WOW!! What a beautiful knife!!! Who’s your boss if I may ask?
It look fresh without any moon or sun
It's defective. Better send it back!
Lol!!! Very funny. I am a line cook in a noodle restaurant. My boss also chef owns JeJu Noodle Bar. He had 6 Genkais at one point.
I think so. He is owner chef of JeJu Noodle Bar
Yes, sure. He is Douglass Kim. Owner chef of JeJu Noodle Bar.
Why’s defective ?
By the way, this is not genkai
Lol... pretty sure
That’s what we usually say when we’re jealous of another person’s good fortune. It means the knife is awesome.
In this case he's also referring to the fact that the knife doesn't have a "moon" over it's fuji like hamon....
Thanks, got it.
Owner of this knife is this gentleman
He's sporting a nice Rolex Daytona for anyone nerdy in that direction...
Do you know who made this then? From the naked eye and polishing, I would say genkai masakuni
We're kicking off a knife pass around with this right?
I know only 2 makers that makes Mt fuji hamon. Genkai and Nakagawa. The latter's MOuntain baseline is far more plain
and got to mention that i did come across one made by Y. Ikeda
a very good guess and you wld most probably be on the dime
What does a Rolex means?
I think if i may take a guess, the blacksmith of this blade is the late Okishiba Masakuni, the father/master of Genkai Masakuni. He also had a version of the Mt Fuji hamon. Rare and beautiful blade your boss has there, also very very pricey.
Well, i do hope that it is made by Okishiba-san. Asking pricing in Europe is between EU 25,000 to 30,000 base on the google search.
I did come across a piece that has a sort of sun or moon not etched but via claying...
