    Your Mokume

    Bill,

    how do you etch (or bring out the contrast/finish) on your Mokume like the bolster on my Santoku?

    thanks.

    These are pictures of the knives new, I'll take some pic's tomorrow of how they look now. The pattern comes out with age and use, truly amazing looking.
