      Not only utility knives, there were a good number of buke blades in the latter part of the koto period that had that construction, though it was found more often on the shorter blades, it was probably a way to simplify construction, the majority of the blades that exhibit it are of average-poor quality, and that period coinsides with some of the highest volume of historical blade production.
