That is a nice shig. And definitely the nicest santoku I've ever seen.
I agree, that is the nicest santucky I've ever seen. I still can't grasp the concept though.
That Shig kitaeji santoku is very neat. Now I can't decide whether I like, my Heiji kurouchi semi stainless damascus santoku look or Shig kitaeji look better.
Gotta love a Shig, beautiful knife!
More Shig love! 210 kamagata usuba with a flamed birch saya made my Maksim

What does it say on the saya?
They both look superb.
I think it says: Matukusuyama . Not that I read Kanji.
