I got that news letter the one thing I don't like about it the information they give is rather scant ; if I were to be enticed I like to know a lot more about what I am buying.
It seems that Kenichi Shiraki is a renowned maker of honyaki blades these are hand forged and folded etc in the same way a samurai sword is made so the prices are actually very good for this maker.
I can say owning an entry level honyaki that they outperform any other knife the more you pay the higher the quality they are made usually of high carbon steel they are not laminated some are stainless and certainly the finish on that collection is of the highest level.
There are honyaki yanagibas that are literally thousands to buy so these are well priced it is a shame that knivesshipfree have not rendered the story of them.
