$100

139mm heel to tip
202 g
46mm tall
6.5mm thick

White 1 iron clad
With Saya, but no pin and it's loose
Bought for $183+$20 from Knife Japan


Steel is pretty good and harder than some Sakai stuff. Catches on hair. Bites into skin with very hard pointy teeth, but not as sharp and crisp as my favorite white steel. Feels more wear resistant like blue steel while sharpening, but it's still white. Flattened bevel with low spot at very heel. Fit and finish are great, aside from the low spot

Saya is loose . . . I usually just put a cardboard shim in there, rather than putting a proper wood shim. About 2mm height and thickness loose

Exceptionally straight for a deba . . . Of the deba I've had
