    The Watanabe is much more "workhorse" like, around 25g heavier (with a lighter handle) I custom ordered it with a pointier profile, which feels really nice ( although a bit taller than i usually prefer) I paid extra for mirror polish, which was probably unnecessary as there is plenty of grind/ hammer marks still visible) also the Hamon is not visible.

    The Sakai is ground alot thinner, and more assymetric, ( its a bit like a thinner mizuno) the hamon is nicely polished. This particular knife has a slight bend. It cuts a bit better but the watanabe is more robust.

    If I had to buy one over the other I would choose the ichimonji.
