Thread: Mirror sharpening question.

  1. #1

    Mirror sharpening question.

    Hi guys.
    Borrowing Dave's pic to illustrate my point (I hope you don't mind). I assume that was done via Japanese natural store or any other natural stone which doesn't have precise grit like artificial ones. Or if it?

    I have a 6k grit stone and I can get it to mirror without an issue but it's kinda straight, but I want to try to create that effect.

    Thanks

    are you talking about the wavy dark line? thats the cladiding between the stainless lamination and carbon core on this knife... the color is brought out in etching

    Aye as above its a San mai. The wave effect of the weld line comes from the manner in which the 3 layer billet is forged down to size and the tools used.
    You can see the polished bevel which is a straight line on the edge.

    The core steel on the Hiromoto does look really cool with a good etch. Maybe we should all have one?
