    The Maboroshi asymmetric grind on my particular specimen. I don't know if this was intentional or some product variation, but I like the functional result.

    The Fu Rin Ka Zan is being discontinued, once the current inventory is gone, that's it.

    Anybody know if the F&F of the JCK branded knife is any better then the fujiwara branded ones?

    Fujiwara Teruyasu isn't willing to make any more. The JCK knives were good value, particularly looking at the prices of the Nashiji line elsewhere.

    The major issue with F&F is with the yo-handled Fujiwara Teruyasu knives. The JCK knife has a rustic looking blade with a wa-handle so you won't experience the horrible handle issues. However, the machi is NOT squared evenly on my JCK. The blade was ground with a grinding wheel and there are subtle variations in depth, but there are no obvious overgrinds that would lead to a big divot on the edge with sharpening. Edge retention is much better than expected for a white #1.

    I was actually thinking about making this an 'experiment' knife and thinning out the ENTIRE knife including the nashiji finish to create my own grind. A risky thought, but I think it would be a fun elbow-grease project.

    I had the jck white#1 gyuto.
    That knife can get scary sharp, cuts very well. but the F&F was not the best, very rough finish, edges are sharp, some small overgrind and food sticking was a problem.
    The much cheaper tanaka blue is very similar and in my opinion a better knife.
