This mystery blacksmith is the pupil of one of the most renowned houses in Sanjo. He wants to work as secretly as possible in order to limit conflicts of interest as much as possible.
As you probably know, I have never been a great admirer of Damascus blades, but it must be recognized that it is great art! The polishing work on this blade is completely exceptional. The knife was baptized, Hyomon which means (Ice Crest). We can immediately see by looking at the convex geometry, a total mastery of the level of finish.
This series is unique and is placed on a beautiful Japanese Karin neck that enhances the unprecedented work of this work of art.
