The knife has some heat damage discoloration where the spine enters the handle; it probably doesn't affect the performance of the knife, but on an Echizen knife this is a mistake and certainly not intentional. It also arrived jammed into a blade guard that was clearly too small for it, with the blade guard already split in two because the knife is too big for it.
I have other Shiro Kamo knives, and they're all good. But this one somehow slipped through QC and made it to me. It's still a functional knife, but it makes me sad every time I see it since it's not up to the usual standards of the Takefu Knife Village.
