What am I?

Two “What am I?” quizzes in a row, sorry, but I just arrived at my folks' place in Ohio after a series of very looooong flights from Japan, so jetlag-wise I'm not quire ready to do much writing.

First glance: a stylised, artistic take on a horizon in the ocean.

Second glance: macro shot of a metal edge on blue paper casting a shadow.

Edge of a letter opener?

After seeing a “habaki” as a part of a katana last time, i would say this is the edge of one of these swords.

Is the edge of a blade?

Looks like the edge of a sword. Probably related to that hibaki you posted.

Looks like the edge of a scythe blade – or any other blade I suppose.
