Where from those 7 of Shigefusa Yanagiba Kitaeji

I have got the reply from Shigefusa side about 7 pieces of Yanagiba Kitaeji. The concave flat back side of engraved Shigefusa name are for Nihonbashi Kiya. I guess what all other retail shops have Shigefusa name engraving
on the front bevel side. I was told that it is sure what are made by Shigefusa (not fake), and it must be made before 1989. They were sold to a wholesale company and the wholesale company sold Shigefusa knives to Nihonbashi Kiya, but now, Nihonbashi Kiya buys directly from Shigefusa, and the wholesale company had closed the business, so they might be the old stock for the wholesale company, and they were sold to someone else when Nihonbashi Kiya started to buy Shigefusa knives straight from Shigefusa, or the wholesale company sold them someone else when they closed. That is all what I have got for the history of the seven of the Yanagiba Kitaeji.

Yoshikane Hankotsu Osaka boning knife

This knife is the one of my customer's custom knife to Yoshikane. I placed the order three of them, so I sell two of them this time. They had taken for 6 months, but it looks great, so I am happy with it. I guess it is originally used for fillet chicken or deboning chicken or some other meat. I
t does not have the heel, but it might be a great utility knife. It is boning knife, so it is thicker than the same length petty knife. Please click here to see extra pictures!
