    Absolutely no need to be confused! Shigs and Katos are great anyway, you should have your preferences. I prefer Kato over Shige, but this are my preferences . I can explain( also technically ) why, but this is still not an advise.
    Better try them out in action, then you'll know it for sure!

    Maxim has been on vacation and isn't around. He posted he will be gone and that is why you haven't gotten a response from him. As for the dubious nature of his Kato's be aware that he was the on that introduced Kato and that the the other sellers began selling their versions after the success of his line. He worked with the maker and designed the line with his specs. Others imitated. Do not question the quality or integrity of his products. Maxim is very guarded with the information about the specs of his stuff because he has had other vendors including one you mentioned steal his ideas, sources and products. Please before you bad mouth someone find out the facts.

    Well, I jumped the gun here and I apologize. I did not see Maxims reply and the Op's response. I just don't like it when folks make unfounded claims and unfortunately, I did it myself.

    I'm pretty sure the one vendor mentioned a few posts up hasn't stolen anything or any ideas. I've seen and handled the Katos there and they are noticeably different from the workhorse line. They are of the "standard" lower-height Kato profile as opposed to the workhorse profile. The folks who run the place were also introduced to Kato himself by one of the other makers whom they work closely with - and who praises Kato quite highly - so saying any ideas were stolen here is rather misplaced.

    Thanks Len

    My point is also that they are very different then other Katos thats what i try to explane
    I worked with Kato quite long time on our knives, before i start to sell them.

    I think we went for 4 or 5 prototypes before i got them in the store. And it was both me and Kato that made the improvements.
