I'm working on putting these Ironwood westerns on. Specs are partially done and I'm sticking pictures on. I'll get the rest of them finished tomorrow.

Also, he offered me a set of ironwood western handled Senkos. I never get a chance for these so I think I’m going to take them.

Mark, has the 240 version of this knife already been sold? Sorry but, I haven't been keeping close track of these.

Please buy it before I do something that will get me divorced.

Such a sweet looking knife.

Believe it was around 5 years ago that I bought a Kurosaki Kurouchi AS for $250. Today it sells for..... $250, nice! :ugeek:

I received my shipping notice about three hours after placing my order. That's fast shipping, particularly considering that CKTG must have been hit with a lot of orders due to the newly arrived stock of Kurosaki, Makoto and Anryu.

I get the feeling that knife prices have been rising (noticeably) in the last year, which make it an even better deal.

Especially in the context of demand for his work and his other lines, which are quite a bit more, it's nice to see this hold steady. All the more so as I actually prefer the aesthetics.

I was thinking about getting one of these, how would you compare it to the Fujin AS i recently bought?
I am concerned about the Kurouchi finish

The Kurouchi finish on my AS has held up well. It looks like a better/nicer finish than what is on my Fujin. The AS I have is a thicker heavier knife than the Fujin. Does the AS of today still have the same grind and specs of 5 years earlier, I can't really speak to that.

My new 270 AS is on the thin and nimble side -- can't compare it to earlier versions, though. The Kurouchi seems pretty durable, but mine is still new.
