Will sharpen before shipping. Will update with specs and how the steel feels later. I straightened it.

108g (!!!!!)
51mm tall
4.2mm at handle
3.8mm at heel
1.2mm midway
0.6mm at tip

Wow it's thin

It feels like blue steel maybe. It actually is relatively hard and the blade is distinctly spring, enough that I'm not sure if this is clad or not, but I have to find a lamination line, and I've only seen once monosteel forged that wasn't honyaki from Japan

Finished sharpening it more, it feels more like SK, which feels like white steel but a little more plasticky, but more similar than not. Doesn't like to refine too much on jnats though, but not distinctly soft. . . .less hard than most forged blue or white though, it felt easy, or at least responsive to abrade, but not gushy soft. The handle refuses to come off, which means significant rust in the tang
