Was watching a YT vid following the chefs of Cote NY. Grabbed a blurry screenshot. Looked like a western handle. Anyone know what knives these chefs use?
thanks!

The flat spine makes me think it's a suji that's been sharpened down a bunch and lost a lot of height. Could also be a long petty but I think suji is more likely.

Here's Masamoto's product list, in case you wanted to have a gander.

Here's an English listing for you, same knife. It's their suji.

It's either seen a lot of sharpening or been modified right off the bat as the spine is flat all the way and kissaki curves quite aggressively.

Does Masamoto have a line w 2 rivets in the handle? The one in the vid has only 2 rivets. And the cutting edge does sweep up like a slicer…

what does “purple pattern collar” translate from in Japanese? I found another that has similar markings on the top and bottom of the kanji.
