I was sharpening a customers shun yanagiba today (which actually had the correct structure for the knife's geometry FWIW), and i put a fake kasumi finish on it for a minute. Its not done yet, but i thought you guys might get a kick out of it ;)

*swoon* if i could get a knife like the green brick, but not so fragile, i could be set forever.

that was supposed to have been "stone," of course, not "knife."

You want a new knife as well. That's okay :)

By fake, you mean this is monosteel? If so, looks pretty cool in the picture.

I've done that on a Global yanagi. Only satisfying part of working on that thing. I also can't wait to hear about this synthetic aoto of yours.

Bugger, in my tentative (and some might say "inherently wrong") quest for the one-stop-shop-stone for routine maintenance I was almost pulling the trigger for the green brick, then people would rather suggest going for the gesshin 2k, then other again for the trusted Bester 1200... and now here's another one on the horizon!!!!

Any updates on the ETA for this one? I'm holding out on buying a new stone until I see what this one's all about.

Little bump. I know you've been busy and this probably got missed in the shuffle.
