Old Unused Yanagiba 270mm Carbon steel blade Knife
It might be a new good project to make semi-custom knife!
We have got lots of unused blades from Sakai, Osaka. I do not know how old they are and which brand they are. 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.
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 little possibility Yellow II steel). I have not sharpened it yet, so it leaves up to the new owner.
