looking for a 240mm hitohira tanaka yohei gyuto, 240mm, greatly prefer blue steel. after trying myojin's work on a kono fuji i figured i might as well give yohei(mitsuaki takada) a go. open to a takada no hamono as well for obvious reasons. would also consider kikuchiyo (nakagawa) x yohei as well.

let me know what you got!

Kagekiyo Ginsan seems nice too, also Nakagawa and sharpener seems to be one of Morihiro guys.

In my opinion, thats one of the best collaboration i have seen for a while....i saw one recently but was a bit slow to get it...the nearly mirror finish on the edge and the contrast of the damascus and core is just

was looking primarily for a carbon knife but ive heard nakagawa's ginsan is awesome. the kagekiyo knives look great though. is this a different sharpener from the normal carbon lines? almost all kagekiyo gyutos ive seen are wide bevel

beautiful knife but as weird as this sounds damascus really isnt my thing. a good chunk of extra money for something that just seems harder to maintain. maybe im just being utilitarian here.

I think I saw a BST post confirm it is more thin convex grind, can’t really see a shinogi line. But I could be mistaken.

This series is ground with light convexity and hamaguriba edge with no shinogi line.

this is the description from the link you have on carbon so i think that bst post was correct. sounds like a winner for sure. also the oval walnut handle is nice. this just seems like the odd man out in comparison to the rest of the kagekiyo's ive seen.
