    page 8 on the very top. yanagiba is the only style available in it's class.

    i didn't know that masamoto specialize in swedish steel, they have a swedish wa-gyuto with the same profile and shape like the KS and HS wa-gyuto that's highly reviewed on here. planning to get both eventually

    turns out i was entirely wrong... the bottom seems like a stylistic way of writing ichi (one)... white 1 after all. Sorry for the confusion.
