    New old stock 165mm Shigefusa Santoku I got from Japan. I made a custom horn/Karelian birch custom handle for it & used it for a few days & sharpened it twice. It’s got middle weight workhorse like convex grind & hefty feeling, weight in 180g, actual blade heel to tip 174mm.

    Spine Measurements roughly: handle/Heel/middle/1cm from tip: 6mm/3.5mm/2mm/1.2mm

    Heel height 49mm; Blade length heel to tip 174mm; weight 180g

    I also polished the spine, did lamb blood patina which looks really pretty under the right lighting & angle. The last round of sharpening introduced some shallow stone scarf marks on left front of the blade, but mostly contained below Kasumi section, see the last picture.

    asking $335 + shipping; prefer US.

    Would you mind elaborating on "New old stock;" I am curious on what the characteristics are.

    There’s no special meaning to it. Bought from Japan, seller stated it’s long term storage old stock, never used.

    Yeah, are you tempted at all to do this with your TF?

    No, i already finished TF re-grind, two rounds by hand, & kept the convex profile. I did it the reverse cowgirl style, with Stone on top, ride the knife on the bottom.
