I had Fujiwara adjust the height on my Artifex wa 240. The current ones that came in recently are now about 49mm tall. I'm sure some people will prefer the old ones but for most people 49-50mm blade height is pretty good.

Also, the 210s are in production and should come out in about 1-2 months.

49-50mm tall is what I consider perfect for a 240mm.

48-50 is where I like my 240's and 46-48 for 210's

Good to see you keep your product fresh and changing

Welcome to the Japanese Knife Market! They miss delivery times with a passion! :) Plus US Customs doesn't help things either. A friend of mine has a sister stationed in Japan, she sent him a sword last year in the early Spring time, still in US Customs!

Waiting on the AS Suji, too :P

Swords seem nigh impossible to get through customs into this country. Especially actual historical ones. I had the paperwork to get a forged sword in for kenjutsu and gave up. Ended up buying a cheap, functional one in Philadelphia. Absolutely nothing like the real thing though. Maybe one day?

Any plans to do a run of FKH Carbon 240 wa-gyutos?

There do not seem to be any carbon migaki wa-gyutos under 150 on the market.

Carbon 240 with Octagonal handles would kill.
