Got this watanabe over a year in here from a member
Knife was brand new ,the original owner bought it from the special section on the watanabe website.

Knife when arrive was thick so I decided to thin it and I have discovered a delamination, I tried to contact watanabe directly but the answer I got was nothing good .

So after a while I decided to send it to a bladesmiths here in Sweden (smedjaaspen )to get rid of th4 delamination. Knife being so thick helped actually.
Delamination is gone ,but the knife changed ,in this case is a better knife but the aesthetic still need to be fixed .

Got it back from Patrick last week ,started to work on today but I uave no time for it right now so here we go

Kurouchi finish is almost all gone ,few scratches from the belt grinder are still there,where the delamination was there are still few spot left,Patrick did an awsome job fixing this knife and the grind it s awsome.
Whoever is gonna buy it can have a lot of fun doing kasumi on it ,the jigane has lot of bending,same for the core

Aogami 2 core
Carbon clad
64 mm height
268 mm lenght

Paid over 650 usd
Selling it for 350 usd
