Thread: 240 Suji

  1. #1

    240 Suji










    240mm Suji 52100(4.6mm stock) Marko HT & Temper

    3.4mm over the heel
    2.4mm middle
    .69mm tip

    The finish is not the best but it was hot as hell in my garage yesterday and I just wanted to knock it out.

    Wow, looks MUCH better than the blank I sent you - that sheet should be used for yanagi, miroshi or razor, not gyuto or suji.

    BTW, the suji should be 62RC. You must have sweated a lot doing that hand finishing (there is a huge difference in finishing 60RC and 62RC, unless you can grind all the way to 600grit). Let me know what you think of the HT. I have improved a lot since.

    That looks really good from here, Mario! Are you gonna do anything else to it before you put a handle on it? What's the thickness?

    You can always grind it down some more.
