    New GS line of knives from Konosuke Sakai

    This is the GS line.
    All of these knives are made of stainless clad SLD stainless steel at roughly 63 HRC
    They are even thinner than the Konosuke HD2 and Swedish Stainless!
    The handles are Khii rosewood with ends rounded

    The price range will be very comparable to the Swedish Stainless by Konosuke

    New mark looks like the printed kind you get with Yusuke, and the thin clad construction reminds me a bit of new Blazen/Takamura stuff. They look pretty sweet.

    Yeah, those look pretty sweet! I sent a PM about the price, and got a quick response. Very similar to HH prices (perhaps a bit higher, but includes a saya).

    Those handles look a bit beefier (a good thing, IMO) than typical Kono handles. Ivan, is that correct?
