My friend just received this knife as a gift. I think its pretty ugly...haha

Anyways he asked me to sharpen it for him so I'd like to know a bit more about the knife. Anybody know? Ill try to take a better pic of the kanji later

OEM blade badged as Togiharu, Yoshihiro, Kanetsune, Monzaburo, JCK Gekko, probably some others. Stainless core, some sources say 19C27, others VG-10 at 58-60, maybe both exist?

Yep. I think it's not bad looking. They work ok too.

NO ChoP!
