"Looks great, for repairing a rare old knife that wont be used, fantastic. No real worry anout the temper for display purpose. For your own daily user, you know the tip may g dull sooner and thats ok too. Sure beats a broken tip. "

Hey Michael.  The knife you're referring to is a Junglee Fukuta Hunter AUS-8 steel.  made in Seki.. They make a smaller version also.  I have both.. They are really quality. The orig. factory was in Seki but closed. Now they're made in Taiwan and perhaps China.. Don't have a one of those in my stuff. No way!!!!! I have it priced at $115 if it would ever make the shows.. The Seki knives are pretty hard to come by..
