    On my Wakizashi I got from a friend, it's marking on the blade are worn down pretty far, I can post pics later.

    Anyways it says clearly
    BK 1602
    Carbon Steel
    Handcrafted in China

    Just like that. I try googling BK 1602 and don't find shit on it. But from other things I've seen is this sword really 6.02% Carbon Steel? That's an insanely high amount of Carbon isn't it? Or is it something else.

    The BK 1602 probably has nothing to do with the steel type. It might be a Bud K model number.
