This is my wife's 180 mm Gyuto. She bought it on a whim from Japanese Knife Company about 7 or 8 years ago. It's Damascus stainless clad vg10. It gets used every day for home cooking. It has been sharpened regularly and thinned a little every sharpening session. The Damascus pattern is faded and uneven due to thinning. I would like to make it pop again. I understand the first step will be sanding through a progression to even it out. And then some kind of etching process. What works best for stainless Damascus pattern weld cladding? What can I do safely in my apartment? Here's some pics of what we're dealing with. Thanks in advance for any tips or pointers.
