This jumped into my brain when I was reading. It's got a suji type profile but it's thick like a yanagi but two sided and a workhorse for sure: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/rihablstshgy.html It's a hefty knife with a cool hamon on the blade.

This Yoshihiro Yauji Suji is really close to what you're looking for. It's one sided, flat on the back and pretty thick at the top. Great grind on this knife:

Aogami super is very difficult and temperamental to heat treat so most of the traditional smiths stay away from it.

You know, I should talk to my steel mill guys that sell this stuff and see if they can locate some traditional knives made with aogami super steel.

Yeah, I've never seen an AS yanagi as best I can remember. Most likely for the reason Mark said....it's a PITA to work with.

Not really....you could regrind it, or cut some of it off with a grinder to get into a thicker part of the knife.

TOMMY <> I know the Richmond Hamon Suji is 43mm, but man, I never thought there was a knife that could actually fit your request so perfectly. May be a few mm's taller than you think you'd like, but man is that knife a good match to what you're describing.

Awesome job on that call, Mark! :shock:
