    sakai yusuke = ashi hamono?

    ive thought about this several times. they offer the same steels and especially the western handled knifes look very similar. both offer extra ht for the stainless, both in sakai. now tell me this aint a ashi hamono knife...

    whatever you do, don't go looking at Sakai Ichimonji Mitsuhide, it'll make your head spin.

    I think both knives just represent a style of knife making/manufacturing that is Indicative of Sakai, Japan.

    alibaba is an automated system that grabs info from around the net and puts it together.... i've found that overall it is not so accurate FWIW

    I think ALIBABA has wrong picture for sakai yusuke! sakai yusuke's kanji is "堺 佑助"........
    "銀香"=ashi Hamono “Ginga” series=Gesshin Ginga.

    yeah if you visit ashi and yusuke's website's you'll see they are quite different looking, and as far as i can tell, their showrooms have different street addresses in Sakai.

    I have an Ashi and a Yusuke, both 240mm wa-gyutos, one stainless one carbon. The F&F are Miles apart. The Ashi is 6.5/10 and the Yuke 9.5.

    I'd rather not say how, but I do not believe they are the same
