Hi.

I picked up this knife on an auction with the intent of restoring it, but never done anything to it.
Has been sitting in its box since day 1, not used by me, not sharpened by me.
Work/Sharpening has been done on the Ura part as you can see from the picture; I am no expert in Single Bevels so I am not sure how the condition is, please judge yourself.
Description of the knife that has been given is in Japanese and if you guys are interested I could post it.
What I got out of it is that is made by Yoshikazu Ikeda, there is no kanji on the blade, handle is quince and looks pretty.
Hamon is present both sides, less visible on the Ura but it is there.
It is a full tang Western handle, being honest I don't recall many honyaki Western handle in the Japanese knife market, I think just for that is worthy all the money, haven't seen something quite like it.
Measurements:
Edge length is around 175mm
Handle length little over 100mm
Thickness 4mm

Price is 600AUD shipped in Australia.
Overseas 370USD buyer pays shipping minus 10USD.

Let me know if you have any concern,
Nicola

Can you post a pic of the Kato Petty, handle and blade in one shot. Whats the edge length and height. Is this a JNS WH model? Is that a nibble on the heel? Helluva sweetener.

150mm petty standard, from JNS, burnt chestnut handle, yes is a nibble. I prefer not to sell the hanlde anyway, that's why I haven't pictured it.

So just the blade and no handle, correct? Don't blame you. I have two JNS burnt chestnut D-shape handles and they are perfection.

Oh no man!! You could have sold it to me. I would have flipped it a week after for more than double. Next time hit me up.
