    Beautiful as always Jon. I have had the service done on my yanagi from Jon as well. I bet she's going to cut like a dream! Can't wait to get to JKI someday. I'm going to bring you all of my knives for sharpening and touch up!

    Are you also finishing the front and back of the blade face, or just final sharpening of the cutting edge?

    Looks amazing!

    the whole blade road, uraoshi sharpening, and koba (micorbevel), plus making it look pretty

    I have never used a yanagi nor meet anyone that used one. That being said, is there any performance advantage to creating a contrast between cladding? Does the friction coefficient of the different steels play a role in food release or something? Is it pointless besides the good look?

    nope... just looks cool. It can, however, help show that proper sharpening has been done (though not always, as some people use fingerstones and other tools to cover up high and low spots, or missed areas)

    I think my choice of the word "pointless" was a bad choice, as It makes an impression on how I feel about your work. Entirely not the case. I admire your skills, jon. I was asking strictly from a performance point of view.
