That Yahiko is incredible. The patina looks painted on.
I'm afraid to use it again as I doubt it's even remotely stable and I'll lose it.

Mizuno KS profile W#2 Honyaki after making a huge batch of pico de gallo. This is by far the coolest patina that I have ever gotten!!!

Awesome, I'd be really interested in your thoughts of the KU mazaki! It's been on my list for a bit here, but I haven't heard a single review on it yet.

For reference, the migaki is 220mm (220 edge) and the KU is 210mm (214 edge).

When the knife arrived, I was stunned. It was thin behind the edge (thinner than the migaki - cleancut says in general they're thicker than the migaki series) and the KU was unreal. But after some comparison, I've come to enjoy the migaki more. The extra length and heft balances just right for me versus the slightly shorter blade length and lighter weight of the KU. But the KU is a fantastic performer. A breeze to use with just about everything I've thrown at it. Some may think the KU will cause drag when going through product - not in my experience. It just slips through almost everything. If you like a tall, flat profile, you'll be happy with a Mazaki.

I HIGHLY recommend either, depending on your taste in finish. Both are extremely good values. The fact that Mazaki worked with and still works with Kato comes through. For a knife that costs just over 2 bills, I'd have to say these are hard to beat. A 240/250 will cost a bit more, but it's definitely worth it.

Mazaki 240 after a quick edge touch-up on an asagi. Thought it looked cool.

Got an email from Christofer at Cleancut yesterday and he quoted me a Mazaki 250mm Migaki for 1976 SEK shipped(roughly $225-230 depending on exchange rate). He said that he is expecting Mazaki knives to be back in stock at Cleancut before the end of the month and he would send me a payment link when they arrive.

Would like to see Mark run a special on the Mazaki 240 Hairline to keep my patronage here but if not I'll have to jump on the 250 at Cleancut.
If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn't have made animals taste so good.
