Mark, any hints on what Yoshimitsu products you are looking at getting in? They seem to make some interesting blades, including some affordable ones in an unknown tool steel and some very pricey ones in their own tamahagane, which is unusual.

Well, to answer part of my own question, one of the Tamahagane line has arrived in the Close Outs: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/yota21gy.html

I am very curious. If I had $525 burning a hole in my pocket . . .

I believe it is horn. The plastic ones don't look that good even in a picture!

San Mai refers to the blade construction in which a hard core steel (hagane), which forms the cutting edge, is wrapped in a softer cladding steel (jigane). The softer cladding performs a variety of functions. San Mai and Warikomi are often used interchangeably but technically San Mai is a sandwich in which the core steel is exposed on the spine as well as the cutting edge and Warikomi is when the cladding layer wraps from one side, over the spine, and onto the other side.

the Yoshimitsu AS 210mm gyuto looks real nice. I would love to see a 240mm version.
