Ok, this is the most savage nata I have ever seen. My landlord gave this for me to sharpen, and I’ve been having way too much fun playing with it. Easily 100-years old, forged old warikomi style. Double bevel S grind (deep fuller on both sides behind the edge, with a reverse distal taper (thickest at tip) and a recurve. This thing chops ALL DAY LONG. πŸ”ͺ

Taking a quick break from polishing to make sure the bevels are still even. πŸ”ͺ
