How about a group etch for past buys??

The thought of doing that on my Wa Suji (sporting a Stephan handle) would be outragous. But I worry about the way my cladding is on this knife if there may be trouble in the alteration.
This knife has large patches of missing cladding, leading me to think it is rather thin in areas. This is just how my knife was made, nothing that happened to it after I got it. Heck Dave you put the handle on back in the early days lol
Dave I would love to hear more on the cladding and paterns you have come across working with these knives. They are by far still my favorite production knife out there.
I don't normally read suji threads because I know sujis aren't really my thing. I figured I'd read this one because, hey, what's the harm? Damn. Thanks, Dave :P
The 240mm gyutos usually come out crazy but then some don't. The sujis seem to be the least likely to give a good pattern of all the Hiros AS's but I'd bet that DC's older suji with thin cladding would look CRAZY if thinned and etched. I really never know what to expect and it's a crapshoot if you ask me.
