Don't forget these...

You'll often hear people play the - guess this choil - game. Sounds like a yardstick measuring contest more often than not. Then there's Shunsuke Manaka the man behind the Kisuke brand, a fifth generation smith under Manaka Hamono. Something about his choils is easily recognizable, have a look for yourself and see. Manaka-san through scientific research, has combined modern science with traditional techniques to completely by hand produce one of a kind looking knives.

With Manaka-san quickly becoming one of the more established Japanese kitchen knife makers in the world, one does not need to purchase his most expensive ENN line to revel in the beauty of his work. Given he forge welds his own steel, a technique becoming exceedingly more and more rare, even his hon-warikomi is a jaw dropper. A core steel of blue (aogami) #1 wrapped in soft iron will give you the impression of being the ENN line without the Damascus, at a fraction of the price. Same grind, same great performance.
