    Any new info about this?
    Blade material specifics, other than Sweden Stainless?

    Looks very nice to me with decent price.

    E-mail Koki. He will help you out.
    It's right in line with the Sakai-produced Swedish stainless wa-gyutos -
    Sakai Yusuke, Ashi Ginga, Konosuke HH, etc etc.
    Given the division of labor system in Sakai, you could guess that the forging could occur at the same place.

    I ordered a 180mm petty off Koki about a week ago after accidentally noticing the line on his website. The knife looked perfect for a specific task I have in mind. Then I noticed this series of posts today. Rc 60 sounds plenty hard enough for any working knife to me. If it gets dull I certainly know how to sharpen it.

    I own a Sakai Yusuke 240mm Stainless.
    I own a Konosuke HH 240mm.
    The Sakai Yusuke has a slightly thicker but shorter handle, and the blade is about 2mm shorter. Otherwise, I cannot tell them apart. The profiles are almost identical. The spine thickness is identical. The grind is almost IDENTICAL. That's because the left side of the blade is flat except for very slight curvature immediately above the bevel whereas the right side of the blade is convex ground. If it weren't for the different handles and the names of the blade, I would be at a loss to differentiate between two equally performing lasers.

    The photo is deceiving because the blades are slightly at angles. But they are sooooooo similar. If you overlay one blade on top of the other, they are essentially the same on the cutting edge.
