A goodie here. This is from the first run of "The James" blue 1 honyaki from KNS. Oversized 240 at closer to 248mm edge.
Classic fancy pants handle from James (amboyna and double blonde horn) and would come in one of his equally fancy boxes.

This has never been sharpened because the edge retention is ridiculous. Often referred to as "the best blue steel in Japan" for a reason, I guess.
Has a nice and stable patina that's basically from one lovely encounter with a ribeye.

$1800 shipped CONUS.

Thanks, all.
This is probably the last high-end knife in the sell-off so grab it while you can!
