    Semi stainless has an ugly water spot-like patina. I say ignore it until it builds and becomes more uniform....
    I've been using mine for years and it has all kinds of character, but those first few spots bothered me too.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Maybe that since they use a mystery steel they can change this steel whenever they want and you'll never know. Using mystery steels is not only good for keeping trade secrets it's also good for allowing the knife maker the ability to change things up as need be. It could be possible that different gyutos bought at different times have different steels being used which explains some of these knives having different patina appearances.

    Hmmm, no...mine look more like hmmm's photos. Not as much patina as hmmm but definitely not small little pinhole dots. The smallest one is about a centimter in diamter and kind of oblong shaped. Might be the same thing except maybe your knife just got "splashed" with citrus juice or something!

    I don't think they are lacquered. Both of mine came covered in oil. I'm not so hung up on the spotting, what what can I do? Seems sensless to send it back for another one. Guess it is what it is. Cuts like a mofo so thats good at least.
