Thanks guys! A little silly, but fun.
It's just the standard mustard thinned with a touch of vinegar and painted on with one of my kids cheap watercolor brushes. I also wipe the face with some cows blood to emulate the honyaki rainbow laquer.
Ha Ha - sweet!! Hey Chris - getting a patina on that Ontario yet? My Goodell is coloring up fast. Damn - this is a great knife!!!
Oh Yah, its taking a nice brilliant blue. I still can't get over how light and nimble it is, especially being so old.
Here it is with Mikes Russian Bog oak, Russian birch burl handle...
wOw , its so exotic =)
i am trying, desperately, not to pull the trigger... but then again, i want to shorten my waiting time for my marko custom gyuto a little...
how do you guys describe the profile of the KS? it seems to be quite flat, no?
Are you thinking about getting the 252mm KS suji over in the FOR SALE thread?
It is a great price - I wouldn't hesitate were it not for fact I had just ordered a Misono that is on a plane as I type...
[EDIT - ooops sorry if I got hopes up I see it just sold. Someone got a good deal]
Yeah the profile is super flat, that's one of the reasons why I got rid of mine
