    Jarrod,

    Great write-up and pictures, thanks for sharing. I have a Konosuke 240mm White #2 Gyuto that I'm waiting to send to Marko once he gets some time.

    its a preference issue... you tend to see it from some people and not from others. It is more prevelent in kanto area makers than kansai area makers, but Konosuke (being in osaka) is not alone in leaving the machi gap in their region. Some makers are willing to change it for special orders and some are really set in their ways and like the way it is.

    James, that gap IS the machi. The neck is called the emoto. See http://zknives.com/knives/kitchen/misc/jbladeant.shtml

    The main thing to note with a machi is that USUALY knives that have a machi are measured from the end of the machi to the blade tip, and knives that don't are measured from the heel of the blade to the tip. Watanabe for example has a machi on his yanagi, so a 300 mm yanagi will actually be about 290 on the blade, whereas his deba has no machi and ergo a 210 deba will have a 210 edge.
