Black Coat → Black Stonewash
7228L-GV has changed blade finish from black coat to black stonewash since 2022 August. So a 7228L-GV featuring black stonewash blade is authentic too.
In future is only the black stonewash version. And we are changing its name from GV to GV2.
Sorry for the confusion and thank you all for your attention and help.
