Clad with 100 year old stock Japanese Iron; woodgrain appearance...
This knife has some belly, and is substantial. I would classify it as "mighty" and rustic.
Takes a really colorful patina, quickly.

Sandlewood/ pakka D handle (has a copper tube that is visible at the top of handle, could use some epoxy to seal everything, I think, as there are some noticeable gaps around machi area)

I sanded out some of the rustic grind marks with 600 grit, otherwise knife is relatively untouched from retailer....13584

New $260/ came "zero ground" from retailer...

$170 shipped

Edge gets exceedingly sharp, yet it has enough meat behind it, that it can tackle anything. Much better retention than #2...

Checking out Itto-Ryu, you will see some awesome high end stuff, in line with Shigeki Tanaka and Takeshi Saji....

I don't want to speak for no chip, but the d handle has been reversed for his leftyness.

It is currently set up for righties, but isn't epoxied, rather burnt in so it's easy to pop off and flip if needed....
