    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

    marko, it seems to be a regional thing. I've seen it from every sanjo trained blacksmith i've seen.

    Turns out that's not my knife anymore. I went and ordered an upgrade

    I think that is pretty remarkable. It is just horn, spacer and wood, same as a lot of handles out there. But Markos just have a "look" about them, like you could pick them out of a lineup. Hard to do on something simple.

    Some of it is photography, but most is the symmetry and finish. And yes, it is very simple if you think about it. I like to keep things simple and clean if I can.

    Marko's handles (and sayas too) have a very distinct look to them and I agree this isn't easy to do with something like this. As always, great looking work Marko.

    Thanks Dave. Those sayas are coming, but not as quickly as I would like
