    Hi all, looking to switch up the collection to something I'd be more willing to use.

    In my biased opinion, the nicest Ikeda honyaki I've seen, but I'll let pics speak for themselves.

    This knife has a lot of things that I specifically requested for.

    It has Ikeda-San's kanji engraved (Ikeda Mi Wa) as well as thinned by Kasahara San at my request. This is a knife that's ready to get down to work.

    Steel: White 2
    Heel height: 55mm
    Actual edge length:236mm
    Handle: Ebony with blond horn
    Condition: Unused

    Asking 1250(from 1350), shipped internationally by Fedex from Singapore.

    I had the chance to personally view this knife. It’s a hella monster and the finish is superb. One of the nicest mirror finishes I’ve seen to date. It’s great value and anyone would be in awe when they get it.

    GLWS!

    Has the price in the initial posting been modified? Is that the new price?

    the original asking ($1350) is still in the original post. Am I missing something?

    Beautiful knife, I say use it! Of course, personally, I would be too intimidated with that incredible mirror shining back at me every time. GLWS, been on here for too long!

    This is what I meant when I said the knife was thinned by the maker, as requested. It's ready to rumble.

    Damn, this is so tempting but I just bought some new knives. If it's still here in a month or two, I'll more than likely pull the trigger.
