    Can anyone tell me anything about Ashi Hamono? I have found a wa hankotsu I like the look of. Are these guys the manufacturer of JKI gesshin ginga line?

    There's a few out there. Both honesuki and hankotsu I've seen.

    Jon Has a Wa hankotsu up now seen here.
    http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...hankostu.html#

    and a wa honesuke here. http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...honesuki.html#

    Both clock in right under the $200 mark. Looks like they are not true single bevel, maybe 90/10 or whatever. Anybody have one or can confirm?

    If I may, I believe they do indeed make the Gesshin Ginga knives for JKI. However, there may be some specific things Jon requests to make them Gesshin. Weather that may be the grind, heat treatment, fit and finish etc I don't know. That will have to be a conversation for you and Jon I suppose. I can tell you this, if he puts his name on it I can assure you of the quality.

    Here's a vid from Jon about Gesshin Ginga. He even describes some of the changes.

    Yeah I also like the yoshikane but the ashi is about $70 cheaper so I'm wondering if it's worth the extra for the yoshi

    I'm waitin for Marko's honesuki. He's taking his time and analyzing all these other makers. I'd rather bide my time and get the best.

    yes... a number of those things are done to our line. Also, with the honesuki and hankotsu, they are highly asymmetric, but not "single bevel" in the sense i normally think of.

    Yeah, no hollow back. Are there any hollow back hankotsu? I haven't seen one.
