    it is a flat profile exactly 270 length and 56mm height with a low sitting nose per mike's concept, apparently he sent takeda a drawing and it came out just as he envisioned it. pretty much exactly what i want, except i want 57mm height and perhaps 265 length and slightly thicker spine if possible.

    i was also considering a masakage koishi, but i get the suspicion it's more of a drawer queen type if that makes any sense. takeda is supremely easy to sharpen which is great, i'm really not a fan of stainless cladding due to its annoying behavior on stones.
    Uh...isn't Takeda using SS cladding now?

    If you work with Takeda personally he will make you whatever you want.

    normally i would look in bst, but i am looking for specific attributes so custom is the only way, i like the 'new style' grind, wedging doesnt bother me as that can be worked out, stuff sticking to the side of the blade drives me nuts however.
