Thread: Gengetsu Sneak Peak

  1. #31
    i'll try to get measurements up when they go up for sale. They arent lasers... maybe more like something in between our kochi lines (super thin) and Gesshin Heiji (mighty, but thin behind the edge and by all accounts a great cutter)

    Sorry for my ignorance, but what does "raise the cladding" mean?

    Was doing a bit of reading to try and install some more terminology since I was confusing Kasumi and Awase (as in Awase vs Honyaki)....found a nice diagram talking about this subject:



    This made me wonder which type of awase the Gengetsu is, san-mai or warikomi?

    Would I be correct that San Mai is more typical for knives cut from a sheet of steel and Warikomi is more typical for forged blades?

    So for the Gengetsu, there needs to be a bit of care for the carbon at the spine as well as at the edge?

    is this too geeky? Should I just get back to looking on my doorstep every 10 minutes?

    nope... thats not correct. Its more of a regional difference than anything else. However, i doubt you will see too many warikomi knives cut out from sheets of steel

    As far as spine care, i've never really found it to be too much of an issue. Sometimes you get a cool line of patina down the spine, but not always.

    Also, i could be wrong about gengetsu... i need to take a closer look, but sometimes it can be tough to tell when the spines are finished to look even. I may end up asking the maker if i cant tell for sure.

    I was hoping you'd say exactly that. There will be photos if that happens!
