    The good thing is if I mess up I can just say I changed my mind on which wood to use.

    I think I fit into the category of "Experimental Chef".
    I do the grocery shopping and cook dinner each night.
    I don't use recipes, just remember some of what I read and then put things together intuitively (not sure if this makes sense?)

    Once in a while I make a flop, but for the most part my dinners turn out better than what I can usually get in a mid level restaurant.

    I really want to try the blow torch roast. I drool when I think about it.

    Ok hate to share this, but it needs to be shown. So before i got the edges too thin, i figured i would do a quick dirty etch to see the hamon....Not happy with the results....Too close to the edge. It will get reclayed and re heat treated tonight.



    This saddens me....

    How deep does the temper go? Wont a close hamon forgive a little when sharpening as the face is thinned?

    It might, but this one dips all the way to the edge, meaning it didnt fully harden..I will sand this side a bit finer and etch(at 220 now) and see...hopefully it will raise off the edge, if not, i need to re HT it....

    Ok, so it was re clay coated, re heated and is tempering right now I gave it a quick sand and etch, and i think we have a winner! I also think we have more activity in it this time.

    Good!
    I like the unusual stuff.
    Thank You for all your good work Mike.
    I am really looking forward to this knife.
    I have set aside several blocks that are likely candidates for this knife.

    Good news!!!! Everything worked out GREAT!




    Did some cool stuff with this one. The ashi on it are going to be awesome! This is a REAl fast dirty etch, but when it is finished properly, she will pop real nice! Also...note the tiger stripes on the spine new trick
