Hi Mark:

The Suisin Shironiko yanagi that you carry, does it have a buffalo horn ferrule? How is the fit and finish on the knife? I know it is made of white#2 (same as the konosuke 300mm kiritsuke yanagi), but how does it cut in comparison to the Konosuke white#2 kiritsuke yanagi? By any chance you have the measurement of the 270mm Suisin shironiko yanagi and the konosuke 300mm white #2 kiritsuke yanagi like the spine width, height at heel and weight etc.

Hi Steve,

I'll be in the office tomorrow and I'll try and put together a side by side comparison for you.

The ferrule on the Suisin is buffalo horn and they're nice handles. These are good knives and I like them a little more than the Masamoto KK and a little less than the Konosuke but they're all right in the same ball park.
