    Wow, that is just awesome!!! What was the final stone used?? Or stone progression if you don't mind me asking? That is a really nice and clean contrast there!!

    i forgot to take a before pic of this one, but this one started out with about 2mm missing from the tip and a very large (long) 1.5mm-2mm or so chunk of the edge missing. After some initial sharpening, i saw that this yanagiba also had horrible high and low spots. It took much longer to fix than i had planned
