Tanto "Ryo" (1)
The hardening work was done by a customer. And so is the polishing work.
The hamon is made of large particles (nie) making an active wavy pattern. It starts away from the tang. And the start of utsuri (mizukage) is very clear. It is an interesting activity.
The clay also was put by the customer. He designed hamon with clay starting from the hamachi. So the yaki-otoshi and mizukage is unexpected appearance for him.
