    Kiridashi

    Quick practice piece, and a Christmas present for father. A Kiridashi, made quite traditionally, Japanese Vanadium steel edge welded to mild steel. The Hollow on the back was shaped initially on a wheel the brought into the edge by hand with a course Wa stone. Really pleased with the look of the Ura, and the bevel. If you look closely you will see it is a compound bevel as in single bevel knives.















    Thanks to Maxim for the Wa stones and pointers on the hollow back.

    Is that a Takashima finishing stone?
