I had a Kaiden Kodo sld gyuto nashiji and currently own a yoshi skd nashiji. Both great and I wouldn’t be surprised if yoshi makes Kaiden but they don’t cut the same.

I have an old stock SLD Yoshi nakiri from JNS and the grind on that seems different to the SKD variants. Closer to a wide bevel than high flat ish grind on the SKD.
Hard to say because it’s been over 3 years since I used the Kaiden and I’d have a better idea if I used them side by side. But, I love yoshi skd steel a lot more that’s for sure
