    Niolox/SB1 anyone?

    I don't know how much interest there might be but I've had a few requests to try out a Niolox blade over the last few months. I recently bought a second quality blade from Rottman that I was thinking of refinishing/modifying and I thought I'd let some people play with it before I get too attached. As it stands, it is a right-handed ground 240 mm hybrid "gyuji" with a largish wa-handle at 62 ish hrc. He also made a left-handed version for himself with a crude, smallish western style handle that he agreed to let me borrow, if there are any lefties that are interested. Again, these are not meant to be representative of his work since they really aren't particularly well finished but it's an opportunity to try out a difficult to obtain steel.

    FYI, Niolox is also known as SB1.
