No. not all.
Anyway, I would be less foo about this if I were you. There are a half dozen or so commercially available gyutos at around $200 give or take that will give you excellent service. I have, to be honest, way more experience with this than you and I still have no interest in some crazy artisinal knife. Maybe some day, though I doubt it. I just see no point in focusing, at your beginning point, on obscure artisans you don't know anything about. You can get a fantastic knife at Korin or MTC that will outclass 99.9% of what's out there.
The sainted Matt S, the best cook I know (by far) uses a Masamoto that costs about $100 less than my knife. Any my knife, while available only in specialty shops, is still easy to get compared to the things you posts.
Only someone with deformed hands needs a bespoke knife.
