    I expect they'll fall into the two latter categories. I don't oft watch FN, but I do tend to tune in if someone interesting is featured. On the occasions I've seen Chris Cosentino using knives, he seems to be wielding a Nenox kiritsuke more often than not. If he's teaming up with Kai Shun, I guess we'll see something different moving forward. If they approach the knives the same way they did the Shun "single bevel" knives, they'll be anything but traditional single bevel. They'll have the characteristics and geometry of the single bevel knife with a very distinct western style double bevel cutting edge on it.

    As they are bead blasting the blade road, good luck with maintenance.

    Sure won't look like OOTB after the first thinning session.

    Not a bad looking knife,looks like a single bevel,if it is similar in geometry to their VG-10 Yanagi,then the hollow grind is very shallow.

    The bead blast looks to be more in the middle between the top of the single bevel & the blade road.You can sharpen a SB to a polished edge wt. out messing up the bead blast for a time anyway.

    They do a menkiri as well which is rather strange

    Looks like a good idea that wasn't done quite right. It seems like a big dog is (at least) paying attention.

    "San mai" and "single bevel" don't mix.
