    It's referring to the rough scale surfaces, perhaps as forged. It is clearly not black as more typical kuro-uchi is, and is more of a texture. I think it's charming.

    I took the lacquer off of my Takedas, just as I do with any knife that has lacquer.

    I'm away from the city and Knifewear has a couple sweet Masakage Special Edition Koishi in stock and they're 15% off this month. I had them send me pics of the 210 Gyutos they have. Decided to go with the second from the right. Pretty stoked to get home and pick it up!! Happy Birthday to me

    It's a week away, but that's close enough to justify buying this
