    Yes, but in the meantime would jnat mud get into the convexity or would you need som other technique?

    The concavity? You probably wouldn't have good results getting an even finish with any concavity remaining if you wanted to finish finer. Sometimes, *really* muddy softer stones can help you cheat a bit on that

    Interesting line. I'm curious as to how does the grind compare to the r2 line you carry on your website?

    Picked up the 270mm suji. Been having fun with it the last few days. Feels slightly harder than Kurosaki's AS. Very nice heel height on this. Got it mainly for portioning cooked and raw meats, but I've been using it on lots other stuff. Edge retention seems pretty good after slicing lots of crusty meats, and chopping random produce, but it hasn't been long enough for me to form a proper opinion. Took it to the stones because there I could feel a bit of drag from the jigane finish on the bevel. Concavity was pretty minor, nothing that couldn't be hidden with lots of mud. Honestly can't believe I bought a knife this good for less than $220AUD.
