Just wanted to share. Now this is a little bit of an odd choice admittedly but I got this knife to fulfill a vacant spot in my line up -- that of a petty (which it really isn't), and to see have Dave experiment with copper etching on it (which didn't work). I know I could have bought a lot of other knives instead that maybe made more sense -- for the $ or whatever, but holding it in my hand, I'm glad I got it none the less, and can't wait to go play with it when I get home!
The said knife is a Mr. Itou 180 small gyuto in R2 with an abalone handle. Another note, this is my first damascus blade. And it looks really cool up close...
(real photo when I figure out how to post one! but it looks alarmingly similar.)
