    If I'm correct, this is one of 2 specially ordered and spec'd by Tosho. I think I saw the other one the last time I visited the store

    That looks like the one It was tempting when I saw it and handled it, but the edge profile isn't quite as I would like. Definitely a personal preference thing. Taller from heel to spine than standard Konosuke kiritsuke though, which I think is a good thing.

    Yes, it is made by Konosuke Sakai, the S stands for SUPER, normally they put only put it on their Aogami Blue Super knives allong with the Kanji for "blue". Here it is just Super however, i guess they didnt have a stamp for Togo Reigo. And Len is Correct, this was custom made a little bit taller and with a higher bevel than their usual Kiritsuke

    So Tosho says it's made from vintage Swedish steel?. Togo Reigo is certainly British, albeit possibly made from Swedish ore (as was much Sheffield steel of the age). Hmm.

    Togo Reigo is a Swedish Sand steel (that's the style) made by the Andrews Steel company in England.

    Thanks, that's very interesting.

    Sheffield virgin carbon kicks arse for sure, so I have no doubt that this stuff is top drawer.

    If what it says on japantool is true, which I'm sure it is, then I really really want a knife made from it. Some one should reproduce it.
