    I haven't had any of these that long, but with gyuto I have a G.Hide, Shig and Kato which I can never decide between. Does that qualify?

    Mr Zwiefel - how long have you had that Suishin?

    Probably a valid point. People tend to protect their fav makers and sellers here, and members might be hesitant to step out of line.

    Definitely, and the recent thread on 1-bevelled gyuto is as an example. Yeah, there might be 1 or 2 out there that would do it, but if the idea doesn't make sense a good maker wouldn't want his name...

    About the shipping, if your seller ships directly from Japan it's usually very affordable as EMS provides good service from there. (For eg 1kg from Tokyo to SG should cost Y1800 and take 2 days -...

    Exaggeration. No, that's just rootstock and the real vines are then grafted on. Knife-wise, it would be as though the Japanese still made the blades, but then had to attach them to US handles. ...

    Makes some sense. The blade has been thinned down, and the edge appears very polished, but instead of stopping there a fine micro-bev has been put on with a lower-grit stone. Doesn't affect the...

    What about 'em? ;)

    Doesn't have the allure, Dan. Do you know Hakka stones? Well, Hakkayama translates as 'Mint Mountain'. This is the stuff of fantasy!

    My take on this is I'm sure there are nice knives to be found here and there, but I'm interested in the traditions and culture behind the makers in Japan and so I tend to ignore non-Japanese makers. ...
