    Going to try to get at least a mildly good digi-cam soon.
    The blade is slight uchi-zori, slight enough most would probably call it straight.
    Im not sure what you mean by off-set shinogi?
    The profile isnt quite straight, little bit of taper to it.
    Its made of 1084.

    The back edge takes up a little more than 1/3 the width. Im not sure if that makes it offset as Ive seen them this way before. People will call it what they will though, right.

    But will you really ask less dumb questions?

    Im the last guy to be stickler on japanese terms... it was the picture I wasn't see correctly not your description. when I say offset I mean as compared to centered.
    and yes, I will still ask dumb queastions, but I will be able to answer more of them for myself with better pics hehe.

    1084

    Here is some of my last 1084 steel stock. rather than lowering the quality of the pic I Blacked the unimportant parts. I got the file size down to 35K, and the pic is still pretty clear, besides some dust and such.
