Just picked up another Yoshikane in this size range, so letting these two go.

Yoshikane Hammered SKD 180mm Santoku

Really impressed with this santoku, which led to my subsequent Yoshi purchase. This knife has been stropped but never sharpened, and there is some patina starting to form on the cladding. Has a magnolia wood handle.

Selling for $170 USD including shipping within CONUS. Sold!

Nihei Nashiji SLD 165mm Bunka

After reading positive reviews from forum members about this knife, I jumped on it when Carbon Knife Co restocked it. Fit and finish are excellent, and the mirror polish on the blade road is very well done (see pic). Unfortunately after preparing two meals with it, I realized that I preferred a thinner spine for a bunka (comparing this to my Shibata Kotetsu). Blade hasn't been sharpened or stropped and looks like it did new out of the box. The chestnut handle arrived quite dry, so I applied a mix of mineral oil and bees wax to protect it.

Somebody gonna be stoked. Got my Yoshi 180 Santo on Monday and I'm pretty blown away; absolutely phenomenal cutter, even with OOTB edge.

I don't like flat profiles on gyutos, but it works on this little guy. It's great for tapping like a nakiri, but it has a tip and you can rock it bit 😍 I don't see this one leaving the rack anytime soon... unless it's to go to work

Yoshi geometry + wide blade = awesome cutting experience. I prefered the Santoku over the Gyuto with those tsuchime SKD. Congrats to the buyer; fun incoming.

Used it last night and It's just as awesome as I thought it would be. The knife was basically in 100% brand new condition and the seller was great to work with. Buy with confidence.

Bump for the Nihei bunka. Also adding more pics to show off the nashiji and mirror finish in daylight:
