Itto-Ryu hamon question

I noticed that you started carrying these knives. I wondered if the hamon was a real one, or whether it was just cosmetic (etched)?

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Dave,

What you're seeing on the knife is the separation line between the exterior cladding steel and the white #1. It often appears like a hamon but it's not.
