    Seconded, looks like Tadafusa. I came across the handle style when looking for stainless nashiji knives on Rakuten.

    Seki Tsuba-zou? Not sure of the pronunciation. 関鍔蔵作 (last character "saku" just means "-made")

    Reading Chinese fora got me curious about Shibazi. The quality brands I've come across in Taiwan don't get any press except for the tourist stuff, which I don't like as much.

    Interesting, thanks. Seems I'll have to keep searching for the right nakiri, but I look forward to the video nevertheless, if you can post it.

    Haha, I just went for the nakiri, since I liked the look of the kurouchi. Big gamble since I'm actually hunting for something else, but the price means I won't be too scared of tweaking the bevel...

    Cheers. I actually need to get in touch with a Taiwan distributor for Konosuke to see if I can even get one, but they have some appeal to me. The Fujiyama are especially attractive, but I'm...

    So these days I'm toying around with the idea of getting yet another nakiri. I've got a Takeda, which I like but haven't quite nailed down the bevel convexity to balance its excellent nonstick...

    A stubby tip also is a little more forgiving to bumping around, and I agree with Len about the scooping feature. I do think there's something to be said about nimble mini-gyuto or tosa-style...

    Guess the destubification of the tip worked pretty well to sway opinions...I still think the edge and handle should not be perfectly parallel for a santoku, but seems like I'm alone in that thinking.

    A. I'd personally opt to bring the spine curve back a cm or so to make the tip a few degrees more acute, but option A seems to be in the right direction to me.

    Looks like I'll get probably be getting one. I'm too much of a sucker for thin knives. Too bad there's no nakiri or 180mm gyuto model. If they did a 180mm flat profile gyuto I'd be in heaven.

    New mark looks like the printed kind you get with Yusuke, and the thin clad construction reminds me a bit of new Blazen/Takamura stuff. They look pretty sweet.

    Even if one can take the steel to a high grit, it's probably best to start with a solid foundation. A 1k edge ought to be very usable and even close to ideal in some applications, so the OP should...

    Another possibility is excessive convexing/rounding with too much time at 6k. Once the bite is lost, the edge will feel dull.
