    I don't think it's dimpled as a specific step. When forging layers of steel together they will not be perfectly straight, then when you remove material on a bias the pattern is accentuated.

    I just finished up with this one. It's a 240mm Hiromoto AS gyuto that's been thinned, etched, and I installed a new custom handle made from some absolutely killer dyed maple burl from BurlSource. The handle is adorned with red G10 liners and copper pins.

    The blade was a strange one, it was thicker at the heal and tip than in the middle. You just never know what you'll get with Hiros.

    This one belongs to Taro.

    Would you mind sharing your technique for squaring the rear (and front) of the bolster? Do you do it by eye or do you use a guide?

    The bolster is welded on at the factory and are squared at that time. There are some small weld spots in the corners that need to be filed down though.

    Hiromoto AS Sujihiki with Performance Package (Thinned & Etched Blade, Rounded Spine & Choil, Sharpened)

    This one came out pretty good for a suji.
