i went to Kintaka's shop, as i read that Aritsugu was too "commercial" and Kintaka is family-owned and in-house-crafted.
I also stumbled by another nice small shop near Fushimi Inari Taisha; its in fact on-the-way if walking to the shrine from the train station.
They all look really good, but mine cuts fantastic and im happy with the performance. full Carbon though, so it does stain easily
