    Akifusa and Haruyuki are the same company. I believe Haruyuki is a new branding for Western market. I think the others are Haru/Akifusa clones or else white-labeled runs.

    That's an amazing patina. For the life of me, outside of more esoteric protein forcing, can't get anything other than a champagne color out of the Shig naturally. This reminds me a someone who has...

    Dave,
    The book came by the apartment to say hello the other day but I was out of town. Felt really bad about missing it, but what can you do?

    You can clean a certain immediate patinas off with various acidic ingredients, and remove most visible elements of a patina after a night's work with a baking soda slurry. The entirety of the patina...

    James, haven't tried an etch yet. But am planning to. No particular reason why I haven't yet, and probably should've as it is the more efficient solution. Dicked around with various bizarre methods...

    With matt79 on this one. While the cladding will respond to certain ingredients OOTB, it doesn't have the same violent reactivity of other iron clad knives I have. The worst I've seen is a Masakage...

    Thanks Maksim and your videos are great! I think the confusion just gets introduced when looking at the weight on the 240 and 270 vs. the lighter versions of his standard knives. Your answers...

    Not sure if any of you guys have checked out Masakage's Kujira line, but they've piqued my interest as well. I love the edge profile on Masakage and find them to be pretty close to Kato in that...

    Matus, one thing worth noting, those retailers also are about 25% more expensive than JNS (though with VAT, as you are in the EU, it might even out a bit). That's another thing that made the decision...

    Hey Matus, non-workhorse Kato are a bit lighter. My 210 in W#2 is about 200 grams or so and the 240 I have coming is around 225 grams. Not light by any stretch. Something I noticed which is a bit...

    I did grab another standard Kato W#2 in 240 yesterday, only because I was so immensely impressed with the 210 and didn't want to mess with a good thing. I imagine that is how many Workhorse owners...

    Guess losing a sale on either smith doesn't mean a lot as both sell quick, but that is short sighted. Tosho can thank JNS for the Kato 240 purchase (in stock on both sites) as Maxim couldn't be...
