True (although I've used all but my duplicate Katos), but super finished knives tend to discourage potential users more than relatively down to earth finishes as people worry they will never be able to make it look as good again.
This is sort of my point;)

The ad said he bought it for 1300 AUD....Did it go up in value?
@knspiracy I bought that knife off him. I know the person.
Oh wow ok. This community is tight right? I didn't bother having a bidding session on this I thought it would go for more than I could afford..what did it end up going for? Or what could it have gone up to theoretically/realistically?
That knife went for a lot more than AUD 222. The 3 day listing was ended 2 days early by the seller. Buyer must have made an offer the seller couldn't refuse.
How do u find out it goes for more? I was flabbergasted to think it went for $222, spent all day thinking "IF ONLY I'D BID $223" lol
I mean, financially I could have made a grand happen, but in my head knew if could fetch more so I didn’t bother, then I saw the "Sale" price. Was shocked. But to find out it went for more -relieves me of that thought now.

The seller brought that years ago (5-10 years). This knife is not longer released.

W2 Honyaki Konosuke Honyaki is basically OEM Ashi Honyaki with Konosuke Kanji.

A normal Ashi Honyaki gyuto is about $3-4K. This would be more I say as there are many Konosuke fans out there who need this to round out their collection.

Wish I could find a konnosuke or masamoto. The only ones readily available are ashis or ichimonjis.

Ashi honyakis are "readily" available? They seem pretty hard to get and very expensive? Im sure some people just know the right people and have hookups. Is that the case for you? Or am i missing something on how easily attainable they are. 2k+ is out of my league anyways, but i would still be very interested to know if they are easier to attain than what ive thought.

I can easily locate a Ginga, Ichimonji and most people with Ashis have either version. The ones which are difficult to get are the Masamoto or Konosuke versions.

Ashis are expensive but they are what they are. The western versions are amazing, even more than the Wa versions.
