Tanto "Ryo" (2)


This time he tried to call choji pattern in the hamon. This is not a fake choji what is designed by clay. But this is a real choji as an activity of hardening work. He succeeded to call choji, but unfortunately the blade got cracks in the hamon. He accepted the result including the cracks as his own work.






Utsuri also is choji pattern.









Tang
The inscription also is made by himself. It says "Ryo, never transfer to others". This is a heirloom of his family.
