Hi guys,

I got a knife from Tokyo last year. I do not speak Japanese but this particular knife caught my eye and I bought it without knowing anything about it other than it is a 270mm blue steel Yangiba.

Many thanks in advance.

Solved. Just in case anyone was following - no worries if not - but it is indeed the Yanagi.

It is a Nenohi (Nenox) Hontanren Aogami (Blue steel) 270mm Yanagi. Mirror polished.
Handle is marbled buffalo horn.
Handle is Zebrano.

It's a great looking knife for sure. Single bevels have always intrigued me, but being a lefty they usually aren't a good idea for me.

Wanted a polished Yana with a part Hamon for a long time. This one was the cleanest and comes with the traditional exposed machi. Couldn't say no :P
