nevermind ignore this post. talked to the shiglord himself @ Zweber12. ...

This is shigefusa from aizu shigenobu lineage that died off vs shigefusa who makes iwasakis who we're chasing after ??

😂😂 knife is still there!

It’s a high inflation environment, less disposable income, perhaps Shigs are not moving like they were during Covid

The Fugu has always been the most expensive standard offering from Shigefusa. You really need to hold one to see how amazing it is.

its as light as a feather.

Strange times. Seriously dickered yo shig went through the roof today. I am curious about the character kanji though if anyone knows what it means? Heavy price for a fixer upper.

That’s a super early Yo Shig. Those are rare as hen’s teeth my man. Only ever seen one other.

It's also 30cm blade length and Kitaeji. They don't show the left side of it, but it is likely one of the heavily asymmetric gyuto without cladding on the other face. No urasuki but otherwise having the appearance of being single bevel - like the one Eitan got a few years ago.

Shigefusa Kitaeji Gyuto, 300mm, Yo - 牛刀 Like this one.

Also, the last one I saw was the one Eitan got and it maxed the Buyee limit at the time (don't know if it's since changed) at 300k JPY.
