Mel, I cannot comment on long term use either, the only one I have have used was kikuichi branded and the only reason I noticed the rust was because I had it for a rehandle. They may have since moved to a different method.

KALAEB <> Did it have an integral bolster like the photo I posted?

The TKC has a pinned on bolster. Tim converted mine to wa and all he had to do was pop the bolster off with a chisel, no grinding it down or anything. I don't know if water got behind it or anything, you'd have to ask Tim. But definitely pinned on only.

And I suppose I should add, an awesome knife, before and especially after.

There is nothing to negate the quality of the blade, I am sure they are great and at a good price point. One day I will own one. I was just pointing out a concern I had from the one I handled. N=1 is not exactly statistically valid.
Off Topic I would be willing to bet there are very few, if any oem manufacturer's doing true integral bolsters. The only japanese makers I can think of would be Shigefusa, Itinomon, and maybe one ir two more small volume makers. Heck, not even Kramer does them.

Well, I'll take both of your words on it. I am speaking from my memory while referencing the pictures I took so I can't inspect the knife. I don't remember nor am I seeing any seams, but l have to take your words on it. So I guess, thank you.. for the education. See I was just talking about how much I enjoy learning from others here amid conversation. Now I really wanna know how the hell that was pinned on!
Irrespective of what type of or how the bolster is designed although I wanna go edit my post to say "faux integral bolster"... yes, I still feel the same about the knife as a whole.
Thanks guys, and LUCA, I'm glad Tim hooked it up!

Excellent knife. TKC is my first Japanese knife. So far I'm impressed. I think you will be too. When I get more time with it and sharpen it a few more times I'm going to post a review.
Have fun with it.
