New Kanehiros slightly different?

Sun Oct 20, 2013 4:20 pm

I was looking at the Kanehiros, and it looks like the new stock coming in has a curved maki (sp?) as opposed to the angular ones in the past. Is the grind/profile the same?

The last couple of Kanehiro 240's I handled had a very pronounced curved machi; actually one of the most "spacious" ones in the biz. One knife was a customer sharpening job, and the other was Aaron Gibson's person blade, both purchased from CKTG. :)
