    I do not know the answers to the questions you guys are asking.
    I will post more as it moves along and we will see how it turns out.

    What made you finally decide to use the block you decided was too nice to use Mark?

    My wife made a comment about how many pieces were on a shelf at home.
    Sure, she was the one that wanted to keep most of them. But I'm the one that gets called a wood hoarder.
    She meant it good naturedly but I haven't stashed any pieces for myself since then.

    Plus.......things keep changing.
    As soon as I say a piece is the best I have ever seen, something else comes along.

    I say leave it in the ground or make something out of it. Glad to see it's being used!

    Not sure where the 52100 is, in post 4 it's not showing up in the pics and the layers of Nickel seem to extend all the way to the edge.
    Agree with Heirkb, after putting the ura in with the grinder it seems to have been nearly taken out again on the stones

    That wood is stunning though.........

    This is what TK was talking about in his post. Even though this is supposed to be a san mai knife, the outer layers extend all the way to the edge. The point of san mai (from what I understand) is so that you can have a hard core steel that is supported by softer outer steel so that it is not brittle. If the core steel is not exposed at the edge, then there is no point in doing san mai. Maybe others can add more.

    As for what I was saying...the back side of Japanese single bevled knives has a slight hollow to it so that when you sharpen it, the stone only leaves scratches in a thin line along the spine, edge, and tip of the knife. The middle of the hollowed back remains untouched by stones. In this case, it looks like the stones have flattened out nearly half of the hollow grind (see pictures 3 or 6 on the second post).

    It looks like the knife is complete and on it's way.
    Looks really good to me. I will take more photos when it arrives.

    Looks like the handle is going to look sweet with that cladding. Can't wait for better pics!
