Posted By: Cory PhillipsKyohei Shindo is a young up-and-coming blacksmith from Kochi with a bright future ahead of him. This sujihiki is a great performer, nice and thin behind the edge. The fit and finish is great. The upgraded handle is a nice touch. Really spectacular value on this blade. The height is a little taller than most Sujihiki at 42-43mm, so it can be used on a cutting board if desired. I decided to make mine into a pure slicer and lowered the edge angle to 5° per side, making it a real laser beam. The SRK8 steel is basically Shirogami#2 with a tiny amount of chromium, likely to help with forging. All in all, amazing value and an indispensable blade in my lineup.
