    Is the KU line single bevel? or just heavily ground on one side but still double bevel?

    It is double-beveled. I don't have it on hand yet, so I can't inspect it closely.

    Here are some more specs on the gyuto. Also, you can see pics of machi before and after I reworked it. Seeing Maxim video gives me an itch for polishing it, but I probably won't do it this time.

    Weight 202g
    Tang Height - 14mm
    Tang Thickness - 4.4mm
    Machi Height - 17mm
    Tang Lengh - 4 1/8"

    Some more specs:
    Height over Heel - 53.5mm
    Cutting Edge Lengh - 250mm
    Spine at the Handle - 4.4mm
    Spine over Heel - 3.7mm
    Spine in the Middle - 2.3mm
    Spine 10mm from the tip - .8mm

    Marukoyoshi KU damascus suji is here!

    I must admit that I am very impressed with this knife. The blade is straight and thin, the grind is outstanding and workmanship impeccable.

    You guys might not know, but many traditional smiths rarely show their craft at its best, as they forced to produce less expensive knives to compete with mass produced knives, but if paid fairly, many of these folks can really surprise you.

    I borrowed a handle for the pictures from another suji. This knife will feature a Macassar ebony handle with a single spacer and will be available for sale shortly.

    Marko,

    Great looking knives. Any ideas on prices? I really like that suji. Any ideas on a price with custom handle like that?
