    Put one in my cart ... thought at the price, I'd let someone else bite.

    Oh well ... they're fantastic knives.

    Has anyone got a reply or shipping confirmation yet for the Konosuke YS-M? I paid on Monday morning and haven't heard anything back from the seller. They say my order is pending. I'm wondering if they're legit or simply not responding to emails.

    Cyrilix, I paid Japansemessen for a 210 YSM on Saturday and was notified of shipment with tracking on Monday
    Also for some reason PayPal held my payment on Thursday and the seller didn’t receive the funds until Saturday

    I read somewhere that they only ship once a week. I'll have to see what happens on Monday, I guess. It seems like I just missed the cycle. Thanks.

    I think the narrative (cannot confirm personally) is just that his heat treatment is exceptionally good. Good geometry, good treatment, etc. Fit and finish is not his thing (Maksim's words), but supposedly just good ass knives.

    Seems like an odd match for this knife series. These knives have seemed to be more workhorse modest priced offerings. Seems like a Honyaki series will change that.

    That's my hope. The new equivalent to the Hiromoto honyaki, which, when thinned, is a beast.

    I believe it's made by Nenox. I used one in a pass around. Definitely a buy at $75.

    Yes, specs (spine thickness and edge length) changed from earlier reports and seeing Hamon turned me off.

    Still didn’t stop it going quickly. Shigefusa went as well. I had the nakiri in my cart and someone beat me to it
