After some testing and help from one of our fellow forum member's.. refining the blade dimensions and profile, etc. this is what I came up with.. Its my version of a kiritsuke gyuto, Please correct me if Im wrong about the name of this blade profile.. Im still learning. Butch Barner made the marcarta and This was the first time I used his stuff.. Its very nice! and the colors are rich and vibrant.
Comments and critiques welcomed.
