Thoughts in this Wakizashi?

Good evening SBG. I was curious about your thoughts on this Wakizashi

It's made by the Kult of Athena exclusive manufacturer Iron Tiger Forge, and was one of their first items on the site, but have been on backorder status for close to a year. I recently heard from Ryan at KoA that they are finally coming in. The blade is labeled as T-10 carbon steel: I remember hearing somewhere that Chinese T-10 is different than our tool steel. I love the hamon on this one, and I hope the performance can keep up with the looks. Any thoughts?

Decent for the money

Hi Thomas,

The blade looks good, T10 is the same everywhere - there was a rumor that T10 is 1095 carbon steel, but I have no idea where this started and it is not correct. T10 is T10 - you can order both types from China and T10 is more expensive and looks different (plus it has different properties).

The only thing I don't like about it is the ito - the wrap is really ugly and doesn't look very secure.. Otherwise, pretty hard to go wrong.
