Picked up a Forgecraft 8" that had some rust and a somewhat dry handle. Soaked it overnight in Breakfree and cleaned it up with a little steel wool. After that put a new 30 degree edge and oiled up the handle. Did some minor prep of onions, tomatoes, and limes just to see how it cuts. Not too bad but I suspect it will be even better with a little thinning.
Not the best pic, but it's making me smile
once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right
The Masamoto and Shigefusa look both very nice guys! Magnus - did you polish the Masamoto extra? Chinacats - I think your Shigefusa is a 210 mm. Where have you bought this from?
yes i have put a polish on it.
