Tetsujin Blue 2 Kasumi is the little brother of the well-known Tanryusen line. Offering the same profile, same grind, same steel, except the foriging cloud of the Tanryusen. Same as Tanryusen, this Blue 2 Kasumi line is forged by Toru Tamura (田村 徹) and sharpened by Naohito Myojin (明神 直人).
Naohito Myojin (明神 直人) is a young sharpener based in Kochi prefecture. While his workshop Myojin Riki Seisakusho is probably not as famous as the established brands from Sakai and Echizen, he is the sharpener behind some of the very famous knife lines in the industry; noteabley the Tetsujin brand and the 'Fujiyama' line by Konosuke.
I think 'refined' is the best word to describe Naohito's work: while featuring proven cutting performance, his knife has some of the best finishes out there. The spine is nicely chamfered, choil is well polished. By engraving his name Naohito on to the knivves, you can tell that he must be really proud of his work, and I trust you will enjoy his knife as well.
