I've seen those flower patterns on a few Konosuke knives at Tosho Knife Arts. Are they something Konosuke does much? Are they only available on certain knives? Just curious

This is not konosuke... the artistic etching designs like this sakura, the momiji, etc, were started in sakai by the makers of our Gesshin Hide knives. Since then, some other people in Sakai also started doing this, following in their footsteps.

In fact, the very first knives done in this way were exhibited in a number of shows and art galleries across Japan.

Also, this style of etching and engraving together is currently unique to the makers of our Gesshin Hide line... i havent seen anyone else do this yet.

I want to see a closeup of one of the flowers, if they are partially engraved.

white #2 steel and to be honest, i dont recall the size. All i know is its the exact same size and shape that the head chef at the chinese restaurant in the hilton at osaka is using.
