    Sorry to be dense, but I have one more question. Do you guys rinse off the vinegar/acid before adding mustard? I may try this myself on a crappy knife first just to see what happens.

    after seeing how nice the mostly natural patina on the Muzno looks, i decided to start over on the Konosuke. i removed most of the patina using flitz, leaving what i think is a nice look.

    Really liking it, Dave. It changed my mind about nakiris. I don't know if it was the thinness of the blade or the profile (it's flatter than most nakiris), but it just cuts like a dream. It's become my "go to" when I have veggies to prep.

    Butch, if you're reading this, thanks for making such a great knife!
