Mizu Honyaki hand forged aogami 2 quenched in water, the most difficult style of quenching, even among the most skilled smiths there is a high failure rate with this rapid quenching of solid, non-clad steel.
The wavy hamon line created at the boundary of the thicker clay coating on the spine half of the blade where the harder edge starts is often less pronounced on aogami steel, this knife has a lacquer coating which can be seen slightly in the photos, we are happy to remove this.
