    tks..
    I think so too..

    very reasonable price, no wait time, excellent workmanship expected ( see the convexity picture) expected... an excellent purchase. Didnt get the "turbulence" ( much regrets) as it is really one of a kind ( 68,0000 layers) and I dont think that he will repeat it as it is too time consuming to make OR the price will go up significantly; unless another mishap happens. THe colorful handle hampered my decision process. Its lovely but my preference is for something more sedate

    Still... rustable irons are not my thing. but desperately trying to appreciate it. I heard that Stainless damascus will not be as lovely(?) and I look forward to the feather damascus pattern from Will.( next batch)

    hv a nice week-end..

    Thanks David, the one with 68,000 layers is the 240mm suji on its way to you now It was again quite by accident, the original W's are so tiny you can barely see them, but the effect is very pleasing when you see it first hand, bit like moving water. I have not worked out how many was in the "Turbulence Pattern" It is a bolder pattern with larger layers to begin with.
    Its tricky to say how many layers are in the Gyuto, because the layers are perpendicular to the blade. I forged 3 knives out of the billet so the layers in the billet are shared between the knives.
    Layers in this W's billet though was 8,640. That was a 15 layer start, forge out and cut to 4 3 times, then forge out and stack to 9 and forge out with the pattern on top. That spread between 3 knives minus any wastage off the ends.
    The Suji is still available.
