    I have to ask with the crazy high demand why aren't the shigefusa trio making more yo-handled knives? Does anyone have a proper explanation?

    this is probably true, i mean from a production point of view, why not bang out more wa and still have them sell out on the spot than take more time to bang out a yo.

    For sure this is a multifactorial and complex operational/supply chain/market question, though maybe the answer is as simple that the family is not profit driven and their craft is regarded as an elevate mix of tradition and art?

    I think some are looking too deeply into it. Perhaps it's simply what they chose and want to do?

    Traditionally, when old sword makers died, they would just remove these deposits from their hearts and that is where Tamahagane "Blooms" come from. They then made more swords out of them, which closes the energy cycle.
    Well played, sir!
