Yes ginsanko with a funky "pear like" cladding. Totally agree, great value, definitely needs a bit of work. Heel is a bit high, but I like the overall profile. Gets super sharp. Used 400, 1000, red aoto progression on secondary and primary bevels. Asymmetric right sided grind. Look forward to getting to know this one better! Can't overemphasize how light this thinkg is, and its no laser.
Cool Eric I kind of like that funky pear cladding,do not mind project knives either.Assem. edge should be a good cutter,give us an update after you have used it a bit.
