    I bet you did. Its a very labor intensive pattern. and like you said. "can end in tears with this pattern"

    These ones look great!

    And there is more, wanted to see what the pattern looked like on one of the wider blades. Have not profiled this blank yet, but this will be Davids Gyuto.
    Though I would share with you the excitement of the first etch. I think the pattern looks a tad better on a wider blade, gives the W's room to flourish.

    Thanks Guys, its nice how little things alter the pattern, keeping the billet in a big square block, by forging on all sides has pushed the W's this way and that, at the end you can see they have nearly come back on themselves, where I have forged the 2 lumps, on the end square. Interesting swaying effect...More happy accidents

    Whats on today. Forging out Aphex's Gyuto, Judd Mascus, Sean's Feather blank. And probably prepping some handles.

    So , the challenge is how to make it appear "flourish" more on a narrower blade. Where there is a Will, there's a way.....
    Finer feathers?

    have fun...

    Got most of the blanks ready now, most tapered and ready to finish the profiles. This afternoon I finished the billet intended for Judd's Suji and gave it a quick grind to see what we have. Hope you like it!
