Old Unused Yanagiba 240mm Carbon steel blade Knife
It might be a new good project to make semi-custom knife!
We have got lots of rusty unused blades from Osaka. I do not know how old they are, and it was covered by rust entire blade. It has thick spine and it is tapered to the tip, so it is not cheap contemporary construction. They are mostly no stamp and no engraving. I just tried to make it straighten the blade, and removed the rust quickly, and sharpened quickly by #220 rough grit, etc.. It has still some small chips on the edge, but they will be removed after set the bevel and putting on sharp edge. I am not sure what kind of steel on the edge, but it looks white steel, and I felt it is not cheap steel, so I guess what it might be white II steel or white III steel (or Yellow II steel). The blade still has lots of tiny rust spots, but it can be removed after polish the blade.
