    Having found my ultimate Bunka there is no need for me to keep this knife around collecting dust so looking to sell to someone who is looking for a nice budget blade to use regularly without caring about maintenance too much.

    The knife is made of blue #2 with stainless cladding. It’s 209mm long, 48mm tall and 2mm thick at the spine. Heat treat is really nice, the blade sharpens easily, takes a very keen edge and holds it reasonably long.

    The knife underwent some changes in his history. It has been rehandled by the first owner but I changed the handle back to the stock handle (epoxy).

    Also I had to correct an overgrind in the flat spot so the knife has been thinned and might even need some more thinning. The blade face has some scratches from that treatment, mainly on the right side which is my weaker side.

    To reflect all that I’m asking 100€ (~110$) including worldwide shipping in its original box.

    For any questions or more pictures just drop me a line.

    Feel free to make me an offer. Trades in the same price range +/- welcome, no problem if a blade needs some work.

    As it seems there is no interest in this knife so I will just keep it.

    I would still want to part with this knife to free up some space.

    Could a moderator change the tag back to 'WTS' please.

    I'm surprised no one has grabbed it at that price!
