    The elusive Shigefusa cloud, finally starting to get it

    First lest start with Maksims' awesome polishing work on a muki. It's the could, no doubt.



    And next, from Yamashita san's polish on a yanagi.



    I've been wondering if I can get one since the first shigefusa arrived at the door. It finally starts to show on my higashigata usuba, just mainly around the lamination line at the moment and some faint line on the bevel. At least, I think I'm on a journey there. Require more practising:

    Cloudy here in America on kasumi gyuto. I have experimented with soft and hard j-nat and I believe Maxim is correct; more figure with harder j-nat but the stones have be prepared very carefully if you are using finger stones.
    Everywhere you go, there you are.

    Secret damascus only available to forum members. The gyuto is remarkable....are you sure this is really kasumi
    Everywhere you go, there you are.

    Nice job. The "line" you want to bring out is the forge welding line. Keep practicing and you'll reach it.
