    THAT's a nice handle! And the yellowish wood (which wood is it?) contrasts really well with the patina blues.

    I was thinking leave the onions on the blade for a while look. Or just put your tennis shoe on the blade with mustard. (jk, looks cool)
    Chewie's the man.

    Winner with the onions. Chopped up a few onions, and put buried the blade in them, it's going to need a few more repetitions though

    Good idea, and could give you a really nice geometrical pattern.

    I actually did that by accident with my new Yamawaku gyuto. I cut up some onions and left the juice on the blade for a few minutes. When I went to clean it, there was this pattern of discoloration. I panicked and scrubbed it off, before I realized what it was. Duh. It began as a dull reddish brown (kind of looked like rust, which is why I panicked), but underneath it was a pretty, almost iridescent blue. From the pics, it looks like that's a color that a lot of folks shoot for. The next morning, I took the chopped up onions out of the fridge (I was prepping the night before), and buried the blade in them. But, this time there was very little change. So, I think it works best with fresh-cut, juicy onions. Don't let them dry out at all.

    Waiting for the next time I chop some up to try again. And, BTW, it was somewhat of a geometric pattern.
    THAT was the equation. EXISTENCE!...SURVIVAL..must cancel out..programming!

    It's not my knife, but I thought I'd share a pic of the patina on Son's Dragonslayer gyuto.

    The handle is by Stefan with Cooks Pine. Thanks!

    That looks great Rick.
