    Thanks. That was very close to being a 1 minute sale, I saw the thread right when he listed it and almost pulled the trigger. Glad someone else took the temptation away!

    Very nice, not sure if I would cal, it a gyuto or a santoku, but it's a great looking knife and a very nice working size IMHO. And nothing with koa can ever look bad

    Very nice knife, Randy. How are you doing your mustard finish, if I might ask?

    Thanks guys for the comments and complements on the knife..

    Spike, I just clean and dry the blade and apply the mustard with a small paint brush. Leave it on the blade about 5 min. and rinse.. Then, if need be you can reapply to any areas that need it.. This blade I reapplied mustard to the entire blade a second time. Rinse and dry then light oil.

    1095 steel reacts very quickly to mustard.. Some other High Carbons you may have to wait longer to get similar results. But as far as I can tell. Theres no wrong way to do it. Mainly, Have fun and experiment till you get your desired effect.

    Congratulations Choll,
    Beautiful knife. Cool pattern in the patina.

    I am curious about the mustard patina.
    Will it keep looking like this? or will it darken and evolve over time as it is used?

    Choll....I almost took this one straight from Randy's hands! It is the most impressive Koa i have seen in hand...Looks like the figuring goes as deep as the other side of the handle! It feels beautiful in hand, and is a joy to hold. Amazing knife and great score!
