This has been bothering me ever since I have been involved in this group. It seems that most of the vocal people like patina. But I don't like my knives looking dirty. I am trying to learn to appreciate patina, but it just doesn't work. I like to keep my knives looking new and crazy sharp.
Especially the beautiful Galaxy knife by Randy Hass.
Are there any other folks who agree, or am I just lost in the void?
