What is this kind of hamon called?

Recommended Posts

It looks like fire, probably some kind of saka choji variant but it doesn't have the usual clove look. Whatever it is, I really like it and haven't seen it before.

Yes, a variant of sake choji would be my guess too. Let’s see the pro at work.

Hello! James, the Hamon pattern is described in the bottom left of your picture after the words for Tanto 短刀.

 

逆丁子 Gyaku-Chouji can be translated as "reversed clove pattern".

typical a ko-choji midare with nie clusters and deep ashi. Looks like a ichimonji utushi for me.
