Have you carried it before, or is it something completely new?

If this were SNL and you were Justin Timberlake, I think I could answer that question ;)

Really nice profile/ finish. It really reminds me of the mizuno I once had, though considerably thinner.

actually, these guys arent that thin at the spine (thin behind the edge though)

Havent used one yet... not sure if i will have a chance with the list of people who are interested in picking one up

and i would call the finish kasumi, but to make sure i got this one right, i spent time with the blacksmith and sharpener, showing them what i was looking for

Why don't you tell me how I'm supposed to feel comfortable pulling the trigger on a nice 210mm something when every other day you post a teaser about the next big thing "coming soon." Why don't you tell me that Jon. I'm unsubscribing from your newsletter! ;)

NICE. Have you cut anything with them?

Oops, my bad. Lag time... Are you gonna "keep one for the shop?"

havent figured that out yet... long list of people who want them... we'll see

i will say that the sharpener is THE sharpener i have the most respect for in all of japan... and the blacksmith is up there too... some of the most talented people i've met

not so much as what i'm expecting in, but what i already have in (about 30 or so of his knives)... taking pictures is taking me some time... especially with all the other stuff that keeps coming in. I've had a bunch of jin knives in store for a couple of months now.

Uh oh, considering how much time I spend thinking about the gesshin hide honyaki this spells trouble haha. this might be a more realistic one for me :)
Are the profiles pretty similar between the two?
