This is oil quenching products of traditional craftsman Kenichi Shiraki.
It was forged by Mr. Shiraki at least 10 years ago and was sharpened in 2020.
According to the sharpener, the steel has become very hard after 10 years of
aging. Once sharpened, the steel does not harden over time.
This is a valuable one because he is already retired.
Occasionally found, but often not for sale.
If possible, we recommend that you sharpen with a natural whetstone.

During quenching, a wave-like pattern appears by placing mud on the knife. It is called a Hamon in Japanese.
