So, when I first started digging a bit deeper into the JK world, I stumbled upon the newish Echizen 1310 knife series. While checking out those blades, ended up learning a bit about Takefu Village. One thing I have noticed is that PM steels (with the exception of the cladless damascus stuff coming from Saji and Echizen consortium) are all the rage there. It is almost as if it has become part of the identity of Echizen broadly. I was wondering, if any out there (Mark etc.) who are familiar with the local idiosyncrasies of the various knife making regions might have any thoughts on this? Along those lines, it also seems as though PM steels have fallen out of favor a bit within the "cognoscenti" of the knife collecting community. Curious why this may be....

When referring to PM steels are you talking cutlery or other blades? It appears to me to be very popular when browsing forums?

Yeah, cutlery indeed. I know the stuff was developed originally as tool steel, but I have no clue what other applications it may be commonly found
