    Do you mean the ones that Jon carries or the brand on JKI?

    I have the kochi but Jon put such a nice finish on it that I want to play with it for a bit before making a passaround, but it will happen

    Any initial impressions of the knife?
    Last time I checked, couldn't seem to find any reviews on this one yet....
    A quick overview of the knife is: thin behind the edge, bevel set on knife when received was amazing, and f&f was some of the best I've seen on a knife in this price range. Performance was between my DT gyuto and gengetsu I received at the same time. Balance was very forward of the ferule, but seemed to go with the knife perfectly. Initial edge degraded fairly quickly, though I have yet to resharpen it, I want to reach for this knife first when I'm making something new.

    Yep, the Fujiwara that Jon carries, and Japan Woodworker used to carry. The one I remember pictured from JW seemed to be darker, almost kurouchi-esque though. I'm no longer buying new knives, but if I were, this is one I think I'd like to have.

    Which heiji would you be most interested in?

    I'm with Andrew on that. Would be fun to play with a Heiji gyuto.

    Anything of his that's semi stainless; I've heard so much about that steel.

    Thanks Taylor.

    Piton, is your initial impression in line with the above?

    You may have to settle for a Heiji Suji
