Mosaku "Tamahagane" Kiridashi with steel Wrapped Handle


No need for explanation I suppose....

Perfectly sharpened and mirror polished with my best Nakayama Asagi stone. Cuts like a razor. The edge is basically like a glass. I had such a hard time sharpening it....

Kanda-san seems to have made only a couple of these, and he can probably not make anymore because he can't obtain the material.

The box was only stamped by Kanda-san inside the lid, so I signed "Tamahagane Mosaku" and stamped my collection seal. I practiced many times signing the top side, so it came out quite nicely in Sou-sho ("grass style"), but I am a bit embarrassed to show the inside Kaisho ("formal style") signing, which says "Made by Kanda Kikuo from Musashi" in Katana smith manner....

Anyway, as you can tell from this, I had basically no plans of parting with it....

I have kept this Kiridashi for so many years, but as I have too many Kiridashis, it is clear now that I will never get to use it, I decided to part with it.... A total collectors item.

The item is in Australia, the shipping will need to be adjusted according to the destination.
