The amount of kanji I can passively identify is smaller, because my flash cards focus on kanji production, not kanji recognition. I can usually tell if it's a kanji I should know or not, and if I see a page written in Japanese I can usually recognize most kanji on it, but I may not be able to provide the Heisig keywords for them all.
The amount of kanji that I can actually use -- that is, that I know a reading of and can put in a sentence of some kind -- is very small, 100 at most, and some of them I only currently know in a name or a compound word.

I've been studying seriously for about 8 months, but I had a previous background in that I did two years in high school, and also some Mandarin and therefore the basics came back quite quickly, even though it'd been ten years.
