JCK lefty Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan 210mm blue 2 mirorishi deba. Arrived around Xmas but haven’t posted yet.

Also it’s sorta cold comfort to know I’m not the only one who had a negative kemadi experience, gave up in the end after a number of logistical issues and seeing how some people were being treated.

Thanks, always nice to deal with Koki. It was actually originally ordered in September 2020, but because it was lefty it took a few months. Koki didn’t complain about it being a high maintenance request and gave me periodic updates.
Koki is always super pleasant to deal with. Never complained about custom requests :). Also, in keeping with the spirt of this thread, here is my new dammy Toyama yanagiba 270.

so, this is not really a new knife, I bought it from a friend from this forum in Oslo 5 years ago. He also bought it from someone, and we didn’t really know who the maker is. Figured this was an okay place to post this question as it’s so much knowledge in this thread.
Anyone has an idea?

This one is mind-blowing - really show-casing his craft and attention to detail - I would say it’s a value even at 3K

And now, for something completely different...

253 gm
245x58
White 2 extra hard steel with iron cladding
$318

i am going to test drive this against my Mazaki KU as it’s at the $290-$300 I paid for my Mazaki - should be interesting

K&S selling the KU Mazaki at $318 and Carbon knife at $280 - new profile

it’s getting competitive out there
