    It's gotten quite a bit darker and more even in the few weeks since I took this. And yes, I know the edge is crap, but I'm getting better!

    Goddamn Salty. I love the way it looks like the metal is "peeling away" off the blue underneath.

    Blues are the best but I also like the purple that I see on some kasumi yanagis.

    I treated one of my gyutos with phosphoric acid as soon as I got it. What I'm left with is a dull grey knife that won't patina. Was it a mistake? I think so, but atleast it doesn't rust.
