    Nice. I've never seen one with a properly ground ura, they've always had a small but obtuse bevel cut into the back.

    Looking forward to hearing about that synthetic aoto you're testing.

    Liking the faux kasumi finish.
    Just wondering from your progression whether 4k, 5k, 6k was just because you had them, or other benefits e.g. Speed, consistency etc?
