Yes Pierre, that's exactly how I look at it. Shoot, these things could end up being toothpicks by the time I'm finished with them.
here is a quick shot, D2 is a semi stainless, and as of yet, there has been no sign of a patina. I could probably force one, but hey, It still looks ok, no?
270mm Hybrid handled suji
Full tang, stainless bolster, mosaic pins
CPM D2 at HRC 62
Quick tapers from 3/32" at the bolster, down to about 1mm 1/2 inch back from the tip, flat ground spine to edge, slight convex on the edge, near 17*, I have yet to put it to stones (as I have yet to get any lol) but with a ground edge to 2000 grit, and a light power stropped finish to 10000 grit, the missus stays a way from it.
