    heh, yeah. the contrast has gone down with use (cutting roasts has particularly evened everything out), but the forced patina definitely did its job in terms of reactivity and food discoloration.

    i went with a couple layers of vinegar and then daubed mustard on basically at random. i think that natural patina looks really nice. how is reactivity with food?

    Reactivity has been zero after the first month or so. I've been using my Konosuke 300 white#2 suji lately as my main knife, so this guy hasn't seen that much action recently...need to get him back in the game.

    how do you like the Suji vs. the Gyuto? a suji is about the only style of knife i don't own...

    I used to be the same...took me a year to get one, and I just got a cheap Fujiwara FKM 270 just to have one at the time. Then I started forcing myself to use as an everything knife, and I fell in love with the narrow blade. Since then, all I've really cared about is sujihikis and finding the perfect one...have a Konosuke HD 270 on order right now, but am probably going to keep the 300 too.

    Give one a shot, you might just be a convert soon enough!

    Rubber cement and ground beef. I've since removed the patina.

    Just for my own education, how could anyone tell that an edge is crap from a picture like that?
