    Looks like another bead blasted (or etched, but this looks blasted) "tall bevel", not an usuba.

    Might be a nice knife, but man I don't like those frosted areas. They hide scratches and grind...

    I've been experimenting a little with my setup in general to see what gives me edges I like. Lately I've been doing a nice job with JNS 800, Naniwa 4k, and Naniwa 8k (chemical and pure white) with a...

    I have thought to get a duplicate in case of damage, loss, theft, whatever. I can also feel much more free to scratch up or experiment with the original.
