    I read in some thread or another that it was former people from somewhere. Let me throw some Google at it...

    Looks like a very good performer. I'd grab one if I didn't have a Heiji on order.

    $200 for a 240mm stainless clad white 2? Seems almost too good to be true. Is it just the lack of brand recognition?

    Too bad they don't ship to Canada. Anyone find any other retailers?

    Look at the emoto/choil, geometry and profile. Looks extremely Yoshikane-esque, not surprising since they are in Sanjo. As someone mentioned, it's thought he trained at Yoshikane.

    Even the horizontal scratch pattern/finish is identical to my Yoshikane kasumi.

    the price for the 270 seemed pretty reasonable and the choil shot looked promising so I went ahead and ordered one.

    Ill let you guys know what I think.
