    That would be my guess too. Looks like classic Yasutomo.

    Answer!!!




    It is a Louis Mills blade! Its one of his orishigane blade that he just finished making this month. Don't know how many layers it is but its a really cool blade. It will be up on my site for sale as soon as I'm done editing the page for it.

    Thanks for playing guys

    Hey, I guessed right on the other thread! Not bad for can't-tell-kantei! ;-) Just kidding. When I first saw Louie's blades about, what, 2 years ago, he had a very earthly style to his hamon. What was interesting was that the etching done to bring out the hamon also resulted in a very subtle silverish sheen and a subtle opulescence. This blade you posted has activities that seem to be in the same style. That's why I thought he made it.
