    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

    Hell, I meant a certain post as a semi-joke, and you go and find the one Honyaki that actually wears a Yo dress elegantly

    These photos give you an idea of the grind, finish and hamon.

    It is in the sense that both are built to be used and produce product. Comfortable handle, and shape. Nothing overly fancy but begs to be used. Physically the honyaki version isn't as flat as the AS, more attention is paid to the grind/geometry which gives the honyaki version a more substantial feel. I'm anxious to see how it performs over a month's time. I'll do a proper review once I get a complete picture on it's performance, edge retention, ease of sharpening and maintenance. I know some people have a problem with the vague statement that "it feels good in the hand" but I also know that some people understand what that means. This knife does feel good in the hand and as I mentioned, "begs to be used".

    Pulled the trigger on this one thanks to salty - thank you sir!

    It looks much better in the video than it does on the website's pictures
