Tamashiro is an iron cladded White steel used on high end Masamotos, generally traditional single bevel knives.
The "revered" KS is a White #2 mono-steel.

So is the masamoto I've seen similar? Seems like a good fit if someone wanted the is but they can't find one.

Ok. Thanks anyhow Jeff. I would have to assume it's quality being a masamoto and pretty much the same price as a KS.
