    Shun Kramer Meiji SG2 Thinning & Etch Job

    Here's a Shun Kramer Meiji SG2 6" Chef's Knife that came in for some spa treatment. It was thick and the factory damascus was somewhat faded although still factory shiny. I was tasked with thinning the blade, getting rid of the factory logo, and bringing out the contrast on the damascus. Here's the results...

    Looks pretty slick. Too bad the tip is so high...something like that but flatter with a lower tip would be up my alley.

    Excellent work on the knife, Dave! It looks much better than the original and I bet it will cut well now.

    The big knife companies should hire you as a QC guy, that way the end of the production line would be all good.

    I see, I like, I cut!

    I've etched shun's before, maybe it was just because it was a classic from the late 90s or so but it surely didn't come out like this. It just came out "dirty" looking. Didn't like it so I had to polish it all off. Nice work Dave!

    Great timing I was actually going to start a thread on whether this was possible or not. But I certainly didn't know you could etch it like this!

    The VG10 Shuns won't come out so nice, they're going to be dull gray.

    The trick is to polish the blade to a mirror pre-etch.



    Thanks for all the kind words everyone.
