Yeah, I'm curious about the bevel too. If it's 50/50, I might bite.

You know what, I agree. If it were left-handed. Oh well. It looks really cool, though.

it's 50/50,
retention is very good.
This is a very clean high quality tool steel.
I had Honesuki from Misono Swedish carbon steel (which has served as a prototype for the manufacture of the knife)
retention on this knife is much better than Misono.
Steel feels like a blue steel

Hi Vladimir,

I have just bought a true single bevel Honesuki from Maxim, so am not interested in a trade. But I do have a mizuno white #2 180mm yanagiba for sale here (http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/showthread.php/8121-FS-Sashimi-slicers-Suisin-Densyo-shironiko-amp-Mizuno-AU-SYD).
