    Yeah, he forges the billet himself. His kitchen knives are nice and thin with good profiles.

    He's from Takefu, but not the knife village. The single bevels at the booth were made by the other guy and they're made in Seki. He said some of those lines are discontinued but I forget which specifically.

    9483A211-6640-4238-AA1D-F20D9F048DC9.jpeg I brought two non knife friends to the show. One of them was hoping to buy a Takeda, but he didn’t make it this year (had a table but it was empty).

    Instead he bought a Carter Muteki and made me and our other friend buy ones as well.

    The two on the left are Ryan Cavallo and the one on the right is Jamison Chopp. The Cavallos are very thin and light. The Chopp is a bit heavier.

    We met Jamison and Murray and Alex Horn, which was cool.

    I'll post what I have when I get home. I was told the double beveled gyutos, pettys, and such were available direct. He didn't tell me anything about some being discontinued.

    He told us that only after we noticed a few of them were warped or had recurve. He said the migaki were discontinued.

    Note that the email and website on that card is for a wholesaler & online store, Yamahide, who mainly deal with custom outdoor knives.
