Would really like to share how handsome Yoshikane Honesuki is. Arrived this morning, and after a quick trip to the stone, natural, of course, it came out very nicely. Bevel and ura were both very well ground which saved me a lot of time not having to much grunt work.
Somehow I felt that Maxim's photos of the knife makes the tip looks a bit too pointy, and the profile very triangular than it actually is, IMO. In person, it has really nice profile and shape.
