A monster of a blade, with notes of “crude” grindwork to increase the texture of the steel and match the grind lines of the yuri-zu finish. Snakewood adds patterns that echo the spinework, tying the steel to the scales. Gerald wanted me to throw most all my features at this blade, and we ended up with a one of a kind beast shaver.
