I tried to learn to appreciate patina. But the knives from Dave and Randy are simply too georgous to do it. I posted the Patina on Dave's gyuto, but I had to polish it out.
And Randy is after me to let patina develop on tha Galaxy knife.
I just can't do it. Perhaps in time I will learn to appreciate patina. But for now, the knives these guys have built for me are too pretty to let it happen. They have spent so much time and effort to provide the perfect finish.
Maybe I will learn.
