I was going to say that of all the honesukis I have seen, the prize goes to the Watanabe. But seeing Spike's interpretation, I may change my mind at least from the practicality point of view, I love the curved blade, looks very functional and less fragil than the Watanabe.

A couple of Moritakas here.

I'm partial to this. Cuts like Freddy, tough like Rocky Balboa. Pierre has a few of these going to members, I believe.
