So i decided to get rid of some fat on the standard 240 chefs knife from Hiro.

Heres the result, i dont know how much weight is lost, but jesus, its not even half as good when it comes new.

The bevel set is to make the profile like honesuki-gyuto, i want to take some belly out of it, it was made just by 1k king and Ohira.

Whoooh, that's shiny! How far did you go with polishing the body?

Is that the AS? I bet the contrast between the patina and polish would look great

SWEET. That sounds like an awesome makeover. Must have been quite a bit of work! Nice job.

cheers:)

yes this is AS, and yes, labour intensive. I was working on it three weeks, maybe 20 hours altogether.

:D

but was worth it
