Hi all, I have three smaller knives I kept for a while. Looking to find new homes for them.

1. Shigefusa kurochi santoku 165mm (173x52mm, 165g) SOLD

NBIB, great sample of shig finish. Accidentally hit on my laptop when taking photos and had a small chip (silly me), other than that is all good. I didn't touch it up as it is very minor and will be gone in the first sharpening. $310 plus shipping

2. Igarashi kasumi nakiri 170mm (170x52mm, 130g)

Got it with a sandblasted finish, fixed the low spot and put a 6k finish. This nakiri has a "cute" clad line and is on the thinner side, thin grind and a gentle taper on the spine. $135 plus shipping

3. Igarashi kasumi nakiri 150mm (150x50mm, 150g). SOLD

Got it with the other nakiri, light fix the bevel unevenness and put a jnat finish. This smaller nakiri has some weight in hand due to the thicker grind and a solid handle coated with Japanese lacquer. It is packed in a box with Masamoto Sohonton kanji (錬成光刃味觉生- great taste from great sharpness), considering the great f&f on knife and kanji. I suspect it might be a collab of masamoto and Igarashi. But I will leave that to the buyer's judgement. It is a good solid blade overall with a beautiful taper. $135 plus shipping.

Thanks for watching. Roy

I thought there was a third knife. Only two for sale?
sorry there's a limit of 10 photos in a post, had to break it and leave the third in the comment, and I think this special little dude deserves a separate spot :p

Hi, unfortunately it is not claimed on package, nor stamped the steel type on blade, so I can't give you firm answer for this question.

I think they are white steel considering how easy they rise burr on stones.

#3 is the cutest Nakiri I've ever seen, but my wife didn't click, so GLWS!
Thank you! It's a cute knife with the solid lacquer handle, don't see them often, especially on these vintage knives.
