That is cool process. Really love the jig to hold the blade steady.

speaking of, if anyone wants to order a print of something, let me know.

yeah... our canvas prints are kind of large and thus a pain to ship, but if anyone is interested, we can order various sizes and various types of prints

How do you get from:

11291


To:

11292

My singles are starting to get a mirror finish between shig and lamination line. Would prefer the satin (prob wrong term) finish.

Stones are 2k gesshin to 5K rika.

Thanks,

Dave

try a King 800, before the other stones. it won't be quite like that, but it'll likely create more contrast.

In the picture with the cracked up white wheel (about halfway down), is that a typical thickness of an unfinished yanagiba? It seems really thick!
