That is a natural patina? It looks like a forced one to me because of the patterns and textures...not doubting you, I've just never seen a natural one take form like that.

Then again, I've never had a Shig.

I'll outright doubt it, there's no chance in hell that patina is completely natural. I'll agree it happened in one day, but simply put natural patinas don't develop that uniformly (especially not up to the emoto) unless they're... erm, "coerced" a little bit. Besides, he never said it was natural, he just said it was made in one day in the kitchen. That's a literal, though slightly misleading, truth.

This is what I read, and it implies natural patina to me....

Implications can be misleading. Regardless, be it intentional or language barrier or simple miscommunication, I think it's safe to assume we agree, it's not likely to be completely natural. Lol.

That's cool Mike, for a gyuto. Congrat on the new 9 sun.

I try to keep my shigs clean coz they are single bevel :-)

Guys just take it easy :)

Patina is a hybrid.

I chopped loads of red onions with the knife for compote and white for things like foams and such.
I have not wiped the blade right away, for the patinas sake.

The 1/4 of the blade near tang, I just threw onions there. Also when slicing rings I just placed two there.
