    I've got to agree on the reactivity. I've got a Kagayaki AS Santoku which has the same problem.

    A couple of pics of the patina it's developed for me.

    Thanks for the review Rick.

    What do you use to take such precise measurements?

    The alleles created by mutation may be beneficial

    I would guess a pair of calipers.

    Just got a Kagayaki Aogami as I wanted to venture into Aogami world

    Any updates for recommendations how to go forward? I'd like to get some blue patina, if possible...
    1. Let it build patina naturally
    2. Force patina, (bloody meat / mustard?)
    3. Etching, would it highlight the damascus / hammered pattern in this particular knife?

    It came out great looking. Very dark and contrasted with lot's of glittery speckles. Only problem is it was STILL quite reactive after the etch. Notice the area near the handle where it looks like a rust spot. This occurred even after it was neutralized. It has settled down since then but not without some vigilance.

    Thanks for the info! Very nice etch work
    Have you tried or thought about forcing a patina on top of that etch?

    It does patinate over the etch. I gave this knife to my former boss as a going away gift. He had trouble at first but after scrubbing near the handle with Bar Keepers Friend and patinating naturally it has been fine.
