    Great video Jon.
    I am curious about the copper cladding.
    Is it a cosmetic thing?
    Or does it affect carbon migration during the forging.

    I vaguely remember reading something about carbon migration when forging laminated steels.
    But I can't remember what it was. Hence the dumb question.

    I feel really strongly about Jin knives... He has become almost like my grandfather... he is always welcoming and supportive of Jon and I.

    i think i mention in the video, but it was an easy way for him to clad the harder high speed steel. It also happens to look really cool.

    Is there any reactivity or smell from the copper? Whenever I touch copper I notice the smell on my hands for a day or two. I really hope I am able to own a Jin at some point, they seem quite special.
