Hidari Kiyomitsu 325 AU 1 70mm


Old unsed blade, set in a new Japanese very light colour red oak "tsutsumi-guchi" dai recently. Probably White Steel #2. The jigane is high quality kamaji with lots of goma (sesame = black dots seen in the kamaji, which makes it easier to grind). Although everything is of highest quaty, the price is not as expensive because the blacksmith is unknown.

Good quality laminated ura-gane (chipbreaker). Cheap ones are all steel and not laminated.
