“Kogane no Yami” (name by @kevin_karlsson who says it is Japanese for “Golden Darkness” ) 💵 💰 💵 6 inch (150mm) petty blade knife. This awesome knife has a super strong wa style octagonal polyurethane resin handle. The resin is black but has some transparent depth allowing you to see the gold leaf flake.⠀⠀
The blade is made from molybdenum vanadium [stainless] steel, which is a mid-grade stainless steel hardened to HRC 57. Nothing fancy, but gets the job done, won’t rust, and easy to sharpen. You won't have to baby this knife. The edge angle is sharpened to 15 degrees and stropped for a razor sharp edge. Full flat grind (tapers from spine to cutting edge). The blade is 6” (150 mm) long, 1.122” (29.5 mm) tall, & 0.073” (1.85 mm) thick at the spine with a distal taper (gets thinner as it goes to the tip). The total length of the knife is 10.7” (272 mm).
