That is one sexy looking knife. I've always loved the Mizuno wa-gyutos. I've used a couple of the hontanren blue ones and always wanted one. But alas I just love my Masamoto so much I don't want to muddy the waters with another, I'm trying to cut down, (even as I write this I'm wishing I had one.) How do you like your stainless one? How does that swedish steel perform? Are the stainless ones made in the same hontanren fashion as the carbon?
Next I got Mizuno Tanrenjo Stainless, it was not advertised by Koki back then, but I asked and he got me one. It was a laser type gyuto with great geometry and steel.
I LOVE my Tadatsuna. How do you like yours? How is the handle on it? Mine was borderline terrible but the blade is super badass. It's such a shame all the high end cleavers need new handles. it's a big commitment after laying down $300-400. You'd better post some pics of that Yoshikane. Do you have an ETA?
I also like cleavers, I started with Suien VC, moved on to Misono, and now I have Tadatsuna Inox.
I have a custom spec Yoshikane in V2 on order.
