More like a takeover. What I saw in his Instagram, seems he took over Shiraki Hamono and change it into Nakagawa Kajiya/Hamono. I thought he will start using Nakagawa in April.

Nagakawa skill actually is very nice, I heard from japan vendor nagakawa was the main bladesmith from few years ago, no surprise he will took over shiraki Kenichi workshop as he already retired.

He's good, I have several knives forged by him, pretty good for HT. I haven't tried his blue or his stainless, but I heard it's good as well. His Honyaki should be getting better and better.

I haved his lefty yanagiba blue two steel, very easy to sharpen, I love it so much.

"Get some cancer together" = go out for a smoke? Endure similar workplace hazards? Or what?
