    Same brand. I don't think the knives are exactly the same (maybe some).

    i was pretty sure that the email (which i cannot find) said that the specific knife i bought was white 2. makes me kinda wonder what is going on there. it is the 'hagane' 240mm gyuto

    Ok I talked with the seller. The "high carbon"240 is white 2 and the "hagane" 240 for $10 more is white 1.

    i found the email through all the garbage in my inbox and saved stuff (need to clean it up big time) and it is the hagane so i guess i have the white 1 version.

    I would prefer to say the single bevel came with some level of dullness, not sharpness.

    Depends on how to look at it of course, but I wouldnt cut anything with the edge that came on the knife. But it can get very good edge and hold it very very well.

    Thanks everyone for all the Yoshihiro advice. I thought I wanted a yanagiba, but went with a takohiki instead. I found an absolute steal on a 300mm on amazon for $180.

    First time posting pics-I hope it works.
    There are some issues with F&F on the blade( the handle and saya are great though)-especially on the uraoshi- Mostly cosmetic, and I'm rough on my knives at work so it doesn't bother me. Not really sharp OOTB but I worked it minimally on a 4k stone, now it cuts amazingly. I also didn't know which color ferrule I would get, and am happy to get my first white. Maybe I'll do a true review later after I use and abuse the hell out of it.

    congrats

    takobiki has straight edge, I think it is easier to sharpen when yanagi )
