It is a very unusual size of 690 mm.
Normally, this size is a double-edged blade for tuna, but this is a single-edged,
The date of forging by double welding was April 1st, 1994.
The sharpening of Hongasumi finish is May 2020.
The steel is 16 years old, so the steel is very tight.
It comes with a product certificate.
A handle of 28 cm to 30 cm is required, and the displayed price is only for the blade.
I think this is a very valuable one.
