    Dave,

    All I have to say is how much does it cost and where do I sign up!

    I have a 300mm Wa-Gyoto that I'm in the process of grinding a kiritsuke tip onto. After I'm done with it, I'll send it by you and let you do some magic to it.

    If "the hole" is a possible concern, how is this knife going to hold up to sharpening? Won't the cladding give out soon and leave a screwed bevel?

    I don't know if you're doing the tip by hand but if you are you could always just mark the blade for the desired look that you want and I could grind that in rest, wouldn't take me any time at all to do it.

    Either way thanks for the incoming thin & etch work.

    There's a hole? I didn't see one.

    The issue of the cladding is that it's hanging down low on the left side, down onto the bevel in that one spot, but there's still core steel behind it. The knife has been like this since it was made and hasn't presented a problem so I think it'll be OK.

    I should have written "possible hole". My bad!
    Either way, as long as it won't pose a problem, it's all good. I was just wondering if the cladding would be low enough to be where the Aogami core was supposed to be the bevel. In other words, is the low cladding an issue because it might be in place of the Aogami (in the hanging portion), which will effectively be a soft clad bevel segment, or is it another issue?

    Yeah sure it could be an issue as the cladding has no edge holding capability but like I said before the knife had even more cladding all down over the edge before I touched it so at least now it's only one little spot so it's probably OK.

    Gotcha! I know you wouldn't do anything that would negatively affect a knife, but I was curious when I read the thread.
