The machi part was said for joking as I know it's not gonna happen, but I am serious about the "less flatness" ask. I understand profile is essential but these are hand made knives and every batch could be a little different. I'm not asking for dramatic change like on the Mazakis but just a little less flatness. Wakui for example has 2 types of profiles: 1 with dead flatness and 1 without. Gengetsu itself if I read the forum correctly had 2 versions, pre and post 2015/2016, in the past, with a little difference in the profile as well.
Nonetheless, I would be happy if I can get a 225 mm Gengetsu as is.
Hear hear. Wakui profile with the rest of the Gengetsu specs in 225x50ish dimensions would be a killer package. The flatness isn't a dealbreaker for me (I have two Yoshikane gyutos and like them both) but especially on a bigger knife it detracts a little from the "reach-for-ability" of a daily driver.
