This Kitaoka Kaisaki is made from 11 layers of shirogami steel. Along the lower portion of the blade you can see the layers and on the upper portion is a black kurouchi. The back of the blade is polished much like a deba or yanagiba since it is a single bevel knife. 

*The Kaisaki is not a very well known knife style but can be very useful for an assortment of tasks. Originally created for use when preparing shellfish the Kaisaki uses have developed over time. A single edge blade almost like a cross between a small yanagiba and a small deba it can be used to fillet, break down and slice smaller fish or even used to prep small garnish.*
