    When skepticism pass it will be very different knife 😄
    Kato grind is very convex from the spine to the edge

Those numbers are totally subjective, and will change as I cut more stuff, but I'm impressed.

    Sighting along the blade profile from the heel, it looks exceedingly thin near the edge, almost hollow ground, though I'm not experienced enough to be sure. Maybe Maxim has some clues as to how these are produced?

    same for me, no way Shigefusa offers more feedback , but to each their own.
