I got two replacement (finally) tsune rikizai irons in the mail yesterday. I thought I'd ordered one, but I guess I must've done something wrong.

I hope they live up to my last one, because they're just like a harder version of O1 and finer grained.

They're not really that new.

If the blademakers decided they wanted to focus on simpler but more pure alloys, they could do the same thing.
