    WTB Kaiju - $1,800

    i own both a Kaiju and a Kato 240 and use both regularly. I do not agree that the kaiju is a better knife that a Kato. kato (STD) to me, is more versatile, better HT, higher performance grind. I like the kaiju pretty well and its a fantastic knife, but in my experience its a step below Kato...

    SOLD Yoshikazu Tanaka 240mm Aogami Super Gyuto - Autographed

    shinogi looks pretty clear to me. it may not have the same contrast that the diagonal migaki finish creates versus the bead blasted bevel on say the tanaka kyuzo. the uniform kasumi finish hides it a but. but to me it is definitely there.
