Wow, those yellow spacers just kill it, Randy. :notworthy: Spectacular as usual. :drool: But I thought you were going to slow down after last week. I should have known better, lol.

Oh, one other thing. When did you sell your soul to the devil in exchange for all of the outrageously great handle materials. :justkidding: I mean it; the Gyuto just arrived today and I almost broke my neck slipping in the puddle of drool that I left on the floor. Don't know how you do it.:scratchhead:

This one has been a unique challenge that I sorta took personally. Some here dont care for this style of knife much. So I wanted to make one I thought EVERYONE would or could use and love. I think I may of done that with this.

Being 2.5" tall. and this long. Setting the tapers and bevels and adjusting the edge profile to work. Was a fun challenge. :)

Then as soon as I thought I was happy with it. I spec'd it and realized It needed some attention at the tip and one spot on one face. So I worked it a second time. Then set it down for a few days. And when I came back to it. I had just ground the other Santuko and Nakiri I posted last week. and determined. There was even more room for improvement. So I worked the blade again. Then when to the BURL box and these scales JUMPED out and screamed ME, ME ME. So I figured I had better listen.



Ed. Thanks again brother. Now you better wrap that 240 Gyuto up and send it to your family.

You are still the king of bling. I really like the scale and liner combo... and that blade. That's one impressive chunk of steel. Profile looks really good: I like the overall rise to the edge and the smooth transition to the tip. Not much to dislike there :)

Justin. Thanks much brother!

I was thinking about doing a forced patina to this one. Maybe a mustard. or something. Its ALOT of shinny stuff. Im not use to it. If the buyer wants a forced patina added . Ill be happy to do so. :)

love those spacers....nice to see a santoku getting some love here (not that I like them either :D). Nice patina too. Care to give any hints for how you did that?

Beautiful patina, Randy. It looks like you did a background with mustard and then circles with steel wool?

I got a pair of scales from Craig that I think mightve been from the same piece. Beeeautiful.

Id be happy to share how I do the patina. First I heat the blade under the tap. Then when its still warm. I apply Mustard with in this case a basting brush. Swirling the mustard on both sides. After about 5 minutes I rinse under the hottest water my sink will give me. Then dry with a soft towel.

Repeat steps until I am happy with the changes and colors., Apply a light coat of mineral oil.

Nothin to it but to do it! :)

I've only done this once before and used mustard with....interesting...results. Will definitely have to give your approach a go. Thanks!

Iv only done these a handful of times. and each time used a different brush to apply the mustard. each resulting in unique looks. Today I could not find the brush I wanted to use and came across a basting brush.. Figured what the heck. lol

I may also get different results because I have magic mustard. :justkidding: What I do have is fresh 1095 steel. Which is very quick to patina.

Have fun.. :viking:
