    I love how the patina extends out onto the bevel, that's pretty sweet. Nice job, Lefty!

    Raw fish can make a nice purple color. The various salts in cured meats I think is the culprit in the quickly forming patinas.

    Duhh. I should've thought of fish when we're talking about yanagi's...

    Any kind in particular that works faster/stronger than the others?

    Yup!

    I wasn't expecting that when I tried it at first, but I actually like it a lot. Sadly everybody knows what it is off the bat :P

    None forced.
    You can see the profile of the edge guard on the Kanemasa.
    did you take the kuro-uchi finish off the moritaka or is that a custom jobby?

    Nope. It's damascus clad...didn't come kuro-'unchi'. Bought the blade naked & had a Stefan handle fitted by Dave.

    The damascus is pattern is very subtle. And it rusts like a bastid. I got that patina cutting a bunch of pork loin.
