Singatirin is V2.
I played with Edipisreks singatrin(thanks again buddy!), and thought this was a very unique gyuto. Good to see they've done away with the tiny Ho handle, that and the odd angle it was mounted at were my biggest gripes. Takes and holds a decent edge. I put it to heavy use in a pro kitchen and was very happy with its overall performance. Bit on the light side for my tastes tho... I recall it taking a very unusual patina. Does it still have that weird patina Jacob?

I thinned and refinished, so no patina is left now. It had a great patina when I got it, though.
Yup. Really liked what you did with it, ER.

I'm pretty happy to hear that it's V2. My only other experience with this steel had been a Kochi; I found it to take a great edge. Retention if I remember was good--it would lose the initial screaming sharpness rather quickly but then hold a very good edge for a pretty long time. I haven't sharpened my Singatirin yet, but hope it is half as easy to sharpen as the Kochi was.
once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right
not to infringine on this conversation, but for what its worth, most shallow hardening steels can produce a hamon... its steels that arent shallow hardening where either they dont show up or are very difficult to produce
