    There are a few other Japanese makers (and Carter) whose knives feature a similar grind, but it is a mostly a by-product of grinding on 3' (or so) water wheel grinders or forging a blade to shape.

    Of course, the question is whether after all of these centuries, the grind is still merely a by-product?

    Mine would be forged to shape. I plan on forging everything as close to shape as possible. Thought about making a jig to do this, like a fullering tool...exactly Daniel.

    Anything that you forge in will eventually have to be ground out. On stuff this thin, I would think seriously about scraping or grinding.

    Just curious, jm, have you handled a Takeda? They are forged to shape and only the edge is ground.

    No, I haven't. Is the rest of the blade left in its "as forged" state? Don't the Japanese smiths also "finish forge" their blades cold? That may work for them, but I am not going to hit a piece of cold blade steel with a power hammer if I can help it. Call me an old woman, but there it is.
