    It's a Takagi from JWW and calling it a turd is kinda harsh on my part,but I have such a strong hatred for a rustic finish.For 217$ shipped it's a steal.

    Do you need to spend as much sharpening it as you spent thinning and refinishing?

    Takagi use's clay on the HT/quench process but there is no hamon.Do you think I should give it a quick etch to see if it brings it out??

    It won't hurt.

    After all the abuse on the edge this blade is still crazy sharp

    This is one odd looking differential HT,if that's what it is.

    takagi's "hamon" is always pretty darn close to the edge as I recall
