    I think so, but not sure if there is an exception to the rule.

    Yea Yusukes are all printed Kanji and they don't care if Westerners don't like it. I've inquired. they're terrific knives either way. way to go Brian. I've got a knife I'll be sending to Jon too. I agree, his prices are great for the quality and skill he provides. I have a Kono wide bevel ginsanko with Ichi handle that I want replaced with ho. Something about a simple Ho and Black ferrule that does it for me. Handle size is importaint though. Looks like he nailed it.

    Chris, I don't have the measurements but with my large mitts, it feels almost like I'm holding a pencil. There is decent taper to it though and only a slight gap in the seam. At the end of the month I'm going to send it to Jon. If he can remove it intact I'll ask him to send it back but I wouldn't sell it to you. Give it to you I would. I have a Cutco serrated carving knife that I want to send your way too as a PIF. I'll let ya know how it goes.

    I tried to post the pic like ten times, crashed every time. the PIC loader on this site is a POS times ten. rediculious

I liked the knife enough to send to Jon @ JKI who refinished, sharpened, and put on an ichii handle. Looks practically new and cuts like a biznitch. A new favorite in my meager collection.

    EdipisReks hit the head on nail with the asymmetrical handle. Since the handle is an exaggerated Shun type, it is definitely off center looking. He didn't taper it down to the blade so it looks even more off center. The dimensions from side of blade to handle side are .340" left and .475" right so there is a big difference in dimensions. The grip is designed for huge hands and like I stated earlier, I will be modifying this handle to fit my normal hands. Here are a few more pics of that detail.
    Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean you should wear it...
