And like Albert stated have sirauis blades with blood channels.

We have had this discussion about the differences between what appear to be two completely different knives called "siraui" before. Frankly i am still unsure if these more obviously utilitarian knives are legitimately called "siraui" of not. The only source that i have seen on the grooved version being called so in Albert's book. Anybody have other sources?
