    My knives, Markin Andrei.

    Wow, that is one thin tip! Did you laminate it yourself or have you been so lucky to find a source for laminated stainless besides vg10?

    Dust in the shop

    So interesting to see all your setups. You don't smell the fire with a respirator indeed. I saw smoke from the machine when I changed belts. Switching wood to steel and not cleaned the piled up wooddust. Guess that's most often the culprit.

    Durability testing Watanabe Pro Gyuto

    First knife - trash recycling

    Often I find the rehab and tuneup projects the most fun. Takes a lot less time and boring grindwork than making a new one from a strip of metal.
