    Hi.
    Very quick post for this knife I have come across. Please help me out here to identify.
    Kanji reads 幸之祐 (Konosuke).
    Do you think it is an original Konosuke? 82369125_177355616842743_3997386668670713856_n.jpg 82893162_212884113209205_1658239946172923904_n.jpg

    Konosuke has 3 honyaki makers. Shiraki for blue steel, Ashi for white and Genkai for single bevels. That definitely looks like a Shiraki for sure but can't be sure till I see the kanji up close. You definitely hit the jackpot if that is indeed legit.

    From my research Shiraki did the wide bevel versions, this however has no wide bevels. Am I correct here?

    I think Konosuke just made an official post about this on their Instagram
