I bought this 160 deba off of the bay, with pretty much the only info being that it was made by a Yamato. Does the kanji only say Yamato? And does anyone know anything about him?

There was a whole bunch of that stuff on eBay the last few weeks. Or what seemed like more than normal.

@SeattleBen yep, this is one of those :p I bought it as a project knife anyway so mass-produced doesn't really matter

I love those cheapos for practice/project blades.
Usually wind up giving them away and friends love them.

I almost bought one of the yanagibas for uraoshi practice.

How does one practice uraoshi?
I could have spoke more clearly. What I should have said is teach myself single bevel sharpening. Which if it's anything like anything else I've ever taught myself involves ruining something. So, better a cheap knife from eBay than something else.

Ah you meant like that! That's my thought as well with this and a couple other knives :D
