    So you're liking the polished version, in general over the original finish?

    yeah. i went back to a satin brushed for a while (not quite the original finish, but pretty close), but i didn't like how it felt going through food compared to the bright polish. with the brushed finish it also tended to react strongly (it's funny to get perfect outlines of onion slices that were on the blade for a second or two) and it doesn't react much at all with the bright polish.

    A stainless clad shigi.......sounds like a winner to me.

    Cantaloupes. Cut up cantaloupes with it, gone, but the patina remains. Makes for some nasty cantaloupes though.

    What exactly is Swedish Steel, spicy or not? All that means to me is steel produced in Sweden and could be anything. I believe there are about a dozen steel producers in Sweden.

    Nobody knows for sure, it's Shigefusa's secret. It was chosen because it most resembled quality tamahagane steel. Or so the story goes.

    From what Dr Naka told me, the choice was primarily because the quality was much more consistent than the corresponding Japanese made steels.

    It really is interesting to see how Mr. Thomas' "spicy" steel turns out.

    I know Devin likes cayenne, so expect it to be in the steel.
