About This Item
Kiku Ichimonji 180mm high carbon steel Blade Knife w/ original box
It is 180mm from the tip to the heel. It looked it had never been used with original box, but it had rust spots, so I sharpened and tried to remove rust spots as much as I could. There are still tiny rust dots spots on the blade. It has water buffalo ferrule on the handle, and I am not sure what kind of the steel, but it engraves “betsu uchi”, and “Gokujyo” so it might be blue 2 steel. It is ready to use it.
It should be a very old knife, and I guess it might be more than 30 years old.
