We waited a year for this work to be delivered.
It is a work of traditional craftsman Yoshikazu Ikeda.
His products are very difficult to find, even in Japan.
Also this knife was made full mirror finishing with
Namiukashi (Wave floating) hamon.

*It looks rainbow-colored because it is coated with rust-proof liquid vinyl.

We ship with liquid that can easily wipe off this rust inhibitor.
Or, if you would like to wipe at our shop before shipping, please state in 

the comment on the checkout page that you want to wipe. 
Instead, we ship with oil that prevents rust.
