Those specs are about the same as my Tojiros.
The shape is really something.

Tojiro also do a knife with a Rockwell Hardness of 64 !
Might be too hard.

Am thinking micarta handle, RHC of 64 .

My Tojiros are very nice.
It has to be something exceptional that would replace one of those.
My sharpening has improved, so the Tojiros work as well as anything would

The more you practice, the more your "muscle memory" and technique will improve.

I'll let you know when you send me a set! Grin

Have a look though the weirdly named site of hochoknives.com, it's weird because of the name. Hocho is knife in Japanese. There is some nice stabby stabs, choppy chops and slicey slicers there.
