Ricks Forged Swords- Yoshi Ichi

Wakizashi from 1075

Wakizashi forged from 1075. It is an average sori, high shinogi, thinner shaped, but wide. It is very wide at the yokote, and has an O-kissaki. Thickness to width ratio is fairly extreme. Would make a killer cutter for soft targets! Notare midare hamon, very bright and strong yakiba with big turnback. Steel is high Mn 1075, so large nie in linear form (steel from Admiral).
