Thread: Yoshikane petty thinning job

    Yoshikane petty thinning job

    I figured I would make a thread for those who were interested.
    If its useless, cause of quality or the content then say out loud.
    Plus I thought I will not work on the videos, I will let them be as they are.

    So here are the first two where I get the actual thinning done by DMT




    And pics one side after DMT XC with big arse scratches



    And the other side with them removed a little with DMT C



    Worth noting since I got this knife more than year ago I did not thin it at all, weird for me I actually dont know why and must say its performance before the action... well, no performance

    You didn't like that petty before the thinning? I thought it was pretty sweet. It's not a fair comparison, but I liked the petty better than my Shig gyuto. Obviously, the petty was thinner and had less surface area for stiction, but still...

    Right handed.
    When it comes to sharpening, I prefer to use both hands equally.

    Heirkb I like the petty, I like the steel but Im crazy about carbon cladding cause its much easier to maintain.

    Remember I sharpened it few times, after it got here. I thinned it once it got here, but after it got some use...

    Here its worked with JNS 1k. I just removed most scratches that DMTs made.




    Next up is binsui, and after that new finish to the whole blade by wetpapers and some stonemud.

    OK time for small update.

    No video this time, not enough light outside.
    But so one side of the blade is finished. This are the best photos I managed.
    You can see the difference from the other side.

    And a pic of the new handle and saya repolished.
    Not sharpened yet, but this knife is one thin bastard now...

    Looks like good work to me! I just tried polishing a blade face for the first time yesterday, I'm appreciating the work you did here b/c of it
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.
