I found a Tsubaya Stainless Gyuto that looks very similar to the Ikkanshi Tadatsuna and Ashi Ginga. Made in Sakai, mystery smith, mystery stainless steel, similar price range to each other.

Interested in these since they're available in 255 mm and 270 mm sizes, which I would love to upgrade from my 210 Kono HD2.

If anyone knows a hint of what stainless these are made of I'd appreciate it.
 
I think that's made by Ashi. I picked up a stainless ko bunka from Tsubaya in June, which I was told was made by Ashi. The kanji is a match, and it has the same handle design as well. I see a mix of just "Swedish stainless" or sometimes AEB-L.

It'd be nice if it's Swedish Stainless, the INOX stamp on these draws me to think of Tadatsuna's INOX gyuto, which is made of ginsan.
 
That one is made by Ashi actually. I don't know what steel, it could be AUS 8/10/ AEB-L.
because I did ask Ashi directly, but I don't know why they have that nice handle
That's pretty nice that it's Ashi; it's probably not a bad bet that it's Swedish stainless since it's the only stainless steel I know from Ashi.

Thank you for the confirmation!

Page says molybdenum vanadium steel, which could not be AEB-L (but could be AUS-8). It's possibly custom to them, much like how it's rumored they make the HD2, which is in a different steel as well (rumored SKD12 or some equivalent). It's also possible it's a mistake of course.
