The way that you describe it being robust yet lasery makes me think Shigefuesa (but the profile on yours looks better). A well-done partial convex on a thick blade is a thing of magic. Anyone that has experienced one knows what I'm talking about, and anyone who doesn't should by this while I still have will-power and find out!
    I've been playing with Piton's Kato for the past week plus, and I know exactly what you're talking about(now). I actually don't want to pass it on to the next guy. It's THAT good.

    That Watanabe looks fantastic. Congrats to the new owner.

    Looking forward to receiving it. Dave emailed and it's on the way with a fresh sharpening.
