    Thanks for the explanation. But the kikuryu is a sort of damascus like kitaeji isn't it?

    Chrysanthemum Dragon - very evocative! And lust worthy!

    Whew pk, I know you just got a bunch of Katophiles all hot and bothered. Good thing you're in the land down under, otherwise the Scandinavian knife mafia might show up on your door.

    Yes! One of the most beautiful kitaeji patterns I've seen, and it comes with a beautiful polish!

    Kochi 240 kurouchi stainless clad carbon wa-gyuto.

    242 mm on the edge, 51 mm high at the heel. Spine and choil nicely rounded.

    The kurouchi finish is unique - not at all like that on the carbon version. I tried to get a good picture of it.

    The undisclosed core steel was ridiculously easy to get to take a scary sharp edge.

    Nice score on the Kochi! Love sharpening them and excited to hear more about performance of the clad version. Love the carbon one. Do you have experience with the carbon taller profile? Curious how this revised slightly less tall profile performs compared with the carbon profile. My Kochi cuts exceptionally well. Love the finish on the kurouchi too!

    A little CarboNext Suji action in time for the holidays. Now that it is here I wish I would have ordered the 300 instead of the 270 but it sill do.

    Nice score Rick!!! You take that whole "play with all the toys thing" pretty seriously.
