    Careful posting like the will find you many marriage proposals on KKF! Beautiful knife I love shiges thinking about ordering a couple more. If I did not have a 300mm deba I might try for one of those but I still need a Usuba and maybe a 270 gyuto first.

    Great looking knife.
    Just FYI, in this post, Dr. Naka explained that for single bevel knives, kitaeji knives use three kanji characters, while kasumi knives use two.

    I hate to argue with an expert like Dr. Naka but my kasumi yangi has the regular three characters associated with Shigefusa, and it is undoubtably single bevel. I do believe I have seen some shigefusa's with four but that could be a mistake. Looking back the one in this post has four or and I mistaken and the first is not a kanji?

    Thanks for the link. I had never realized that before. It also does look like it's kitaeji, which is pretty cool. Nice grab, Lucretia.
