Yeah, I think you either love or hate those handles...there ain't no in between on this one ;-).

You think Mark might be color blind? :mrgreen:

"Slap these green(blue) ones on them!!!"

Haha, I jest of course. I guess the non-traditional colors just don't speak to me, although that one orange one that was supposed to be auctioned for second harvest really caught my attention.

I had 2 without handles so I thought I would throw a couple of these colored handles on them. I learned a long time ago that taste is very very subjective so I try to offer stuff from time to time that is out of the ordinary.

For example the Ito knives are way too busy for my taste but some people go for them.

We'll have the regular ones back in stock soon.

The tojiro shirogami as a budget wa has treated me well, I thinned it a little and sharpen it at about 25 degrees inclusive and the edge retention surprised me and it developed a patina quickly. OOTB it was a little wedgy, but is better now. I've never used the Anryu but I'm sure it is better.

Tom, if you want the knife now, then def. grab the Anryus that just came in. Who knows, Mark may even offer you a deal on a stock handle to swap on it if you don't like the color (but many people do like colored handles so, whatever). Given what I've read about the Anryu, it is a $225 knife that punches way above it's weight class. You will see this knife discussed alongside others that are a good bit pricier. Given all the constraints/demands you have, this knife seems to be the one that hits them all for you. If you go a different direction, I can almost guarantee you'll be back in 3 weeks placing an order for the Anryu

If you're just itching, then get the one Melampus mentioned. Those handles really are pretty comfortable. They are the same style as those used on the Buho Wa KU line. That knife is absolutely worthy of a custom handle upgrade if you so desire in the future.
