This is a 128-12 with hitasura hamon created with local clay, local river iron and carbonized oak bark for the hardening coating plus other secret ingredients. Steel is AISI 1075, this blade is an art blade but still a very functional piece. This was “interesting” to harden because the extra carbon in the clay came from a local oak that had suffered a fire and the stump was in the stream bed where the clay and the river iron were gathered. It’s available for sale with or without scales, price on request. Please leave a comment with your contact information.
