    Itto-Ryu Rentetsu 210 White #1 wa-gyuto

    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....Name:  5 (2).jpg

    Bump*

    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.

    SPF.....

    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....
