    If anyone has an older aritsugu in gokinko steel, the semi stainless they used to use in A-style and don't use anymore, I'd like to check it out. Looking for WA 240 or 270 depending on the actual measurements, since these ran low and short. Only want gokinko steel not the newer AUS10 A-style.

    Thanks.

    As LOL said, not at all. Closer to cruwear, but not exactly.

    From my research gokinko and TKC semi stainless steels are not the same. TKC semi stainless is similar to kono hd/hd2. Take it for what it is though since I don't have experience with gokinko, but have a lot with hd2 and TKC. Reading reviews of gokinko experience by others though makes me think these are significantly different steels. Again all of it is just guessing backed up by some research.

    I found a 270 that I think will work. The 240s are too short at the heel it seems. Can't change status anymore, but if mods can please do. Thanks to all who offered.
