Good food is essential, where knives are an integral part of the process.
Mert, this is beautiful!
The I love the contrast between the thin Kurochi and the bit that looks like a wide bevel (is it a wide bevel, is it stainless and what did you polish it with?) and then the edge (is it etched- I assume not a natural patina yet?). It's a very creative and really stunning pattern.
