I'll apologize upfront to whoever's wallet I hurt with this...240 Wa Denka on sale for $716.

Apology accepted. 😂 Like @Hz_zzzzzz I have a Denka coming direct (western handle 195mm) but I couldn't resist this a cheaper than direct pricing! Thanks, damn you. 🤣

I don’t think wakui does all of the Kaeru series. But I did suspect it was him this whole time. I suspect him to be the maker of the kochi series at jki also. Who else in sanjo could it be besides him?
The honyaki and workhorse lines have been shuffled and are under the Wakui section now on JNS, agree I think Wakui is Kochi at JKI

didn't know I got a wakui collecting dust 🤷‍♂️ Mine came with a odd heel with a low spot on the edge, feels so bad had to grind some of those off. The steel kinda weird, it lacks bite and has a low edge retention. I got the short hamon one though, hopefully the newer ones are better

Are u talking about Kaeru Workhorse? I haven’t used it enough to sharpen it yet but mine has a top notch fit and finish. It’s a big nasty knife
