Please note the 'aike' on the Blue #1 damascus sakimaru blade. Aike is a term for delamination, which can be seen around the middle of the hira right where the damascus cladding is. It's often regarded as a cosmetic defect, which doesn't pass Sakai city quality control. This is why the price is dicounted. However many craftsmen agree that this doesn't affect usability or sharpening of the blade.
