It never fails to amaze me how popular Shigefusa knives are. I guess people are willing to pay a premium for such great cutters.

Have you become an official supplier of Shigefusa?

A reliable supplier in Europe would be very welcome. I'm shure i could come up with a few Euros to add a shig gyuto to my collection.

Got my petty today, superb FF, a very nice blade it has Moritaka-like profile, with great one piece handle. I am very excited about it, and can't wait to try it for food prep.

I can give a bit of a review after I used it tonight.
OOTB the knife was very sharp, I cut 5 lb potatoes, onion, bacon. No smell or discoloration, no wedging in the potatoes, the handle feels very comfortable.
Them blade is wider than petty but did not feel like it is when I used it in hand.
For me this is a great knife.

Forgot to add, the steel is not reactive at all.

That's definitely one thing that I never experienced with my Shig either. The steel wasn't very reactive at all. Maybe it's only with the kitaeji versions (?).

I have kasumi gyuto that is not very reactive, and that KU petty is even less so.

I just received this little fella and had to test it right away. Cut an onion and it was a smooth effortless experience. Couldn't be more pleased. And yes, no reactiveness what so ever :D

Got mine yesterday, sharpest OOTB I've bought. Nice profile too.

I like the handle better than I thought I would.

I've looked at the Heji's with burnt handles ( photos ), for ages, nowI want one more!

Thanks to Maksim for great service.
