    This may be a dumb question, but why are they called Kato's? Is that the name of the maker? Or is it somehow shortened from Yoshiaki Fujiwara?

    From the JNS website:

    Yoshiaki Fujiwara - The Workhorse

    These beautiful knives are made by Mr. Kiyoshi Kato, born 1944 in Tokyo. He began swordsmith training in 1964, at the age of 20, and is currently a licensed sword smith.

    Kato is his name and its just easier to use
    Also he uses kato on all his hunting knives
    Yoshiaki Fujiwara it's his family name and have been used by his father etc.

    I was thinking these would look really good with a green handle.


    I am just joking. I hope you are not mad at me Maxim.
    I think the name Kato is cool on the knives because it makes me think of the Green Hornet's sidekick.

    You're not thinking of inspector Clouseau's Cato?!
    And the Green Hornet also makes me think of the Inspector's truly awesome car The Silver Hornet.
