    I'm lucky enough to have one in my hand, right now. In a very strangely obsessive way, I'm comparing (just visually and feel-wise) the Singatirin, Itinomonn, and a Shigefusa. Very quick observations, and then I have a bunch of stuff to do:

    Shigefusa: Everything people say seems to be true. Stunning, simple, clean and zero gaps.

    Singatirin: I love the handle, weight, how this is is behind the edge, and the fact that it's honyaki is awesome! Great in hand feel, but much lighter than you expect. Sexy. Least amount of taper in the bunch.

    Itinomonn: Stealing the show a little bit. I love the profile, with the slightly higher tip, and the finish on the blade is unreal. It looks to be a very flat grind, which allows for thinness, but might cause sticktion. With that being said, the shinogi line wil aid in food release, where the KU begins. I say try this out! Maxim found a gem....

    So, back to Singatirin - it's one hell of a knife! Especially for the price.

    Thanks guys. I understood the process and requirements of mizu-honyaki, I just didnt realize that V2 was that close to W#2, I always thought that it was higher alloy / required different hardening times not compatible w/ the mizu quenching process.
    I should have looked at zknives!

    A short report on cleaning up the edge. I had thought that I may have to take it to a finishing stone, but a quick strop on felt loaded w/ 1u diamond juice brought the edge right back to at least initial sharpness. A very responsive steel it seems.
