    Took a page to get going but all beautiful pics/work on last page. Love to hear more impressions/opinions of what finish yields best performance.

    Here's a couple I've posted before.

    Gesshin Hide blue steel 210mm kamagata usuba.



    Itonomon 210mm wa petty.




    Both knives were polished on a king 800 then gesshin jinzo aoto.

    This is quite helpful. I think one of my pitfalls was/is whether there was a general understanding of the aesthetic to be applied to the core steel

    It leaves a much more uniform finish on iron cladding. Produces a pretty nice edge as well.

    Xoom, so king 800 produces a dark contrasty finish? Labor of love gives me crap cause I don't polish any of my bevels, but if I can get a dark finish i may have to pick one up (king800)
