           1 Yaki-Ware on the Kissaki, Horinzontal "lines" (splits) generally due to a poor weld between layers of steel.
           Ware are very common and is not a fatal flaw in this case because the blade is thick.

This blade was traditionally made in Japan about fifteen years ago for cutting test, Tamashigiri.
This blade is similar but shorter than the other Dotanuki blade offered in this range of crafts.
Dotanuki blades are thick and powerful, used since the 14th century on the battlefield.
The efficiency was favored compared to the aethetic aspect, which makes those blades sober but very impressive.
