so... pretty...

( is that an asymmetric grind on the skd -- beveled on the knaji side, flat on the other? )

slightly, to tell you the truth I really never noticed it till I took these shots, here's another choil shot.

that's interesting. ya, one side looks almost dead straight. maybe the finish and hammering make it harder to see from the side...?

such a pretty knife.

Its a choil shot, allot depends on where the hammer marks end on the choil, if you look above one side ends right at the choil the other side ends in front of the choil. I've come to like choil shots but take them with a grain of salt.

"... with a grain of salt." -- right, absolutely; choil shots are super tricky to take and to interpret (plus there are many knives where the grind is different from heel to tip). ... and it's an important point that this particular knife is reported to be a symmetric grind in general, from what i can tell online [such a pretty knife, i had to read/see more online!] and as seattleb confirms, so it's not likely to be a big difference in the first place, or maybe not a difference at all and just something irrelevant at the spine itself. much more relevant is the current price making it dangerously tempting and a big test of my recent vows and pledges re: such purchases at the moment. ... but... so... pretty... (both of them, actually, but the skd's a knock-out, and so uncommon-looking.) thanks very much.

Been curious about the YS/YS-M for a bit. Can you clarify what you mean by YS is the original bronze green?

So YS = Yoshikane Sanjo (probably?)

And

YS-M = Yoshikane Sanjo-Midnight

?

They are really beautiful knives regardless and also seem to be great performers.

GLWS my self control is decreasing rapidly 🤣
