    Marko, it appears on the Shigs that the spine at the handle (actually the entire neck) is much thicker on the kitaji blade than the kasumi blades. I've noticed this on other pics of Shigs as well. Is this true, and if so, why do you think this is?

    This is a feature on all Shigefusa knives, double or single-beveled. The thickness vary and typically a knife's tang is as thick.

    I don't have a good explanation as to why, I would need to ask Shigefusa, but it might have to do with several things:
    - Sign of being hand forged
    - Balance - extra weight on the tang
    - Rigidity at the heel
    - Cleaner handle installation - it completely removes marks from drilled pilot holes
    - Regional thing - Yoshikane knives exhibit similar construction. Both are Sanjo smiths

    Didn't forget about those, but have to make the handles first for proper saya fitting.
