    The very edge was the only part of the knife that was sharpened. The blackened parts show the exposed carbon core steel. The carbon steel turns black from etching in ferric chloride.

    Very nice work indeed! What happened to the balance, after both thinning the blade and rounding handle and bolster?

    Looks really cool, Dave! The look of the blade reminds me a bit of a Catcheside clad knife now.

    To tell you the truth I didn't notice but my guess is that it remained blade heavy.

    I recieved the knife today, the transformation is awesome, the knife performs extremely well now, far far better then it did out of the box. The handle and bolster shaping has made a huge difference to comfort also. And the etching came out really nicely, nice clouding above the lamination line.

    Thank you Dave! Once again another great experience
