    At JCK, KS comes with saya, KK does not. Factor that in, and the price gap reduces quite a bit.

    A good reason to buy a KK from Korin.

    Korin's KK price has already includes saya which makes the price gap between KK and KS pretty close.

    For AU clients, JCK is a better choice for MASA when shipping is factored in.

    I actually ended up getting a yoshihiro from Jon. I know I will get something with a very even blade road from him.
    Thanks everyone for your info. Hopefully this helps other people when they are making their decision. @Sushi Ninja, why do you like White #1 more than #2?

    not generally better, i just prefer it more cause it's tougher and can achieve a sharpness level above white#2
