Just opened up my Masamoto KS 300 yanagi, and I am wondering why it took me years to finally get a single-bevel.

This thing looks and feels amazing, not to mention the fit and finish is beyond my expectations...thanks Koki.

No point to this thread but to share some pics:

Looks very nice and clean. I'd like to see a follow up after your first sharpening. :)

For sure, will do. Gonna be nice to have something new and interesting to sharpen...been a bit too comfortable on the stones that mixing it up will be refreshing.

who made the block?
The rack was made by my girlfriend's stepdad based off the one from Korin. I really like it, especially for knives that have a saya and are over 270mm.

Outstanding looking knife I'm certainly envious. Single bevels are great and that Yanagiba will be something you enjoy for sure. I want a Yanagiba so badly but since it isn't currently a need in my kit I keep putting it off, I don't know how much more I can hold out with photos like this though.

Me too. It has improved my knife skills 150% very quickly (though that's not saying much).

Congrats Jarrod, the knife is beautiful and is the same exact one my friend has except his ferrule is black. Thanks for sharing pics and your collection is quite beastly!

Testing a KS Gyuto right now will be posting a review in a few days but so far it's awesome. I will definitely pick one or two knives from that line.

Yeah, I think my next purchase will be the small KS petty, and if I do give singles a go, the KS usuba looked really, really nice. I just didn't have $300+ for it, considering my (lack of) skills.

I was so busy with work last week and then went on a 4-day weekend vacation, that I'm just getting back into the swing of things and haven't had any real time to play around.

Later this week I plan on sharpening it up and messing around, and hopefully get a post about the experience.
