Anyone know if the wakui migaki is the same as the kasumi line? Appears to be
AFAIK there are two version. Iron clad one that's sold by JNS and a couple other places and the SS clad version which is sold by K&S for one.
They can be called migaki, hairline, kasumi... At least.
Someone mentioned that the Iron clad one is a bit thicker at the spine. Both should be sensational performers. The SS Clad one is for sure!
Wakui makes an augami migaki(carbonclad), then there’s the jns w2, then hairline kasumi. I think the profiles are different. Wakui also makes nashiji and KU knives too.
Never noticed before that there's a B2 version too. Always thought there was just a reactive and ss version of the W2, but there you go.
Yeah, this migaki Wakui is advertised as white #2 clad in SS - http://www.epicedge.com/shopexd.asp?id=95732
Thinking of just taking a spin down there and seeing it vs ordering a Tanaka though I'd prefer a kurochi finish.
Those are really great knives, I like tanaka too but the hairline I prefer.
Thanks, nice to have feedback. The advantage here is that I can go see them, get a feel for them etc (as much as you can in a shop). The disadvantage is that I'm in a shop filled with j-knives...
