    I recently purchased a very old wakizashi in a bone shirasaya, but upon inspection I noticed the blade was forged with the last 1/3 of the top of the blade sharp (last 1/3 of the blade to the point). I was hoping someone could tell me what to call a blade that is sharpened on both sides like this so that I could do further research to determine the swordsmith or age of this sword. Any and all help is appreciated!
