Can you identify this yanagiba?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I bought this knife years ago and have almost never used it -- ended up much preferring  a chef's knife to a yanagiba.  Now that I've got a renewed interest in Japanese knives, I'm curious to know what it is, as I've forgotten long ago.  If I were to sell it, is it worth much?  It's a 9" in OK condition, although the blade has been neglected / not used...

Can anybody shed any light on this?

 

Thanks much!

Jason

It is a Shinomura Tsunoma

Thanks -- regarding that site, I don't see it on the page, and can't read Japanese.  Even with google translate, it's still a mystery.   What's on that page that you were intending to show?

 

Cheers,

Jason

The yanagi is there as
角馬6000 柳刃庖丁 model TU-6006
Which you can copy and paste to look for prices in Japan. Or you can just google Tsunoma yanagi and it should give you a list of retailers in the US so you'd know the retail here (which is apparently http://www.theultimateedge.com/knives.html )..."shimomura Yanagi" brings up more results...
