want to trade my ashi honyaki 240 gyuto. Brandnew never sharpened. But i did etch it to reveal the bandings a bit. Wasnt really visible when i first got it. Im looking for a genkai masakuni sakimaru takobiki or yanagi with sanbon sugi hamon + cash depending on length and condition. Also an okishiba(trying my luck). There are some marks on the handle that werent grinded properly but not really that bad(refer to pics). Pins are nice and flush to the wood. Thanks for looking

Also interested in a Keijiro doi honyaki. I was told he has made honyakis but very rare.

Just interesting cause I have also heard from people that say that Doi has never made Honyakis

From a couple people I trust in Japan- they’ve seen them. Though usually only in a display / museum setting.

So they’re out there.

Willing to do a straight swap with a 390(or longer?) genkai yanagi/takobiki with a normal wavy hamon or sanbon sugi. Not really interested in mt fujis

Well i do have another one. But to be honest. I was a bit disappointed with the hamon when i etched. As much as i like its unique shape and thiness. Not much extra details unlike genkais.. ive seen better hamons from older shirakis but its just what im looking forright now and it may not apply to someones elses taste.

Totally missed that. I scanned every post but overlooked that one. Congrats on the sale!
