  • Honyaki knives from the 4 great legendary masters.

Very Rare , seldom seen and hard to find knives to complete your collection or to use knives from the best makers!

#1 Late Okishiba-san Yanagiba
Ultra rare.This knife is one of a few precious existing knives that were crafted by the renowned blade smith  Masakuni Okishiba-san, featuring his own interpretation of Mount Fuji hamon.  The moon and is created with the claying method as opposed to modern easier way of etching or lazer.  Asking price in Europe is abt EU30,000

#2 Ashi Ginga honyaki gyuto

A very rare unique find, this knife was made 25 years ago. Much sought after, this collector knife was found from our dealer network, the production have stopped 5 years ago. Ashi Hamon Polish (all done by the master himself) is the best we have seen as sword polishing techniques are applied as opposed to mere rubbing of mud to give a mere contrast  and no clear white hamon to boot ;  a crisp white clear hamon line is a testament of the quality of the forging. Others comes a far distant second. Handle is made of macassar ebony with Cloisonne Inlay of a dragon design, a manifestation of his creative streak of that era.

#3 Genkai Masakuni Honyaki Kamagata Usuba 210mm

Genkai Masakuni is the only one apperentice under Heian Okishiba Masakuni, and he is already in his 70s.  Very close to retirement or has recently retired. His honyaki knives commands usd4,000 and new orders are  at least a years wait.... If  its still open.

#4 Late Tatsuo Ikeda Yanagiba  Tatsuo Ikeda -san is one of the best producers of white steel honyaki knives. There is a marking on the tang “正行作”, which is translated as'Masayuki'. (“堺正行” Sakai Masayuki was the brand Tatsuo Ikeda used for his  knives ). He was featured in the Japanese documentary video. A true recent legend.

His recent pieces have seen prices moving up. A simple hon kasumi  petty 150mm was traded at usd900 and a Fugu blade was traded for usd2800.

  • #TatsuoIkeda at #Greengrassi group show for #Condo2018 > With Corvi Mora and Greengrassi galleries pairing up this month, several artists are on display in the main viewing space and it requires careful checking of the paperwork to determine which gallery is associated with which artist. Tatsuo Ikeda who as it turns out is with Greengrassi, though in previous years has also exhibited with the blue-chip giant Gagosian, has produced surreal drawings of figures sporting various nodule bits and sticking out cones. The artwork is very proficient, which allows us not only to enjoy the images, but also to engage with the various distortions of nature without rejecting them on the grounds of incredulity. The images are therefore accepted on account of their near photographic-like appearance. As a passing observation it seems that the two dominant features of these works, namely their Surrealism and their Realism of execution, turn out to be unlikely bedfellows, despite the apparent contradiction of placing these two attributes side by side.

  • Marveling in the surreal and psychedelic works of #TatsuoIkeda, featured in the artist's first solo exhibition in the United States at #FergusMcCaffrey last year.

#Ikeda is part of a generation of artists who emerged in the early 1950s and were emboldened to take back Japanese culture from the militarists, reclaim their own individuality, and find new ways of expression. Highly influenced by the political and social happenings around him, much of Ikeda's early works were reportages and interpretations of a postwar Japan. Ikeda's 'Toy World' series (1966–70) inventively fuses his ongoing social concerns with Hans Bellmer–like Surrealistic references, Japanese pop culture, and psychedelia.
