These sound sweet! Will the AS have "Kohetsu" in kanji on the blade or the Richmond logo?

How hard will it make these knives to sharpen?

I can tell you that HAP40 is more wear resistant than AS. It shouldn't be that hard to sharpen if you have decent stones... the extra stiffness from the tungsten is going to make a stiffer edge less likely to roll while sharpening.... kinda like ZDP. :D

Seems like these PM super steels are leaving carbons moot...

...no doubt about that! There will always be a classical nostalgia associated with carbons.

The Richmond Richmond Aogami Super Gyuto looks very nice!!!

It bears a striking resemblance to the Kono Fujiyama blade, especially the blade geometry.

How can you tell anything about the geometry from that pic? The profile is similar, though.
