I will no longer offer Shigefusa and Marukoyoshi other than what I have on hand. I will still offer custom work for those interested.
Just finished a heat treating test. Fascinating stuff. Particularly after testing hardness on a Rockwell hardness tester. Reminds me of black and white photography back in the day - you never quite know how your negatives come out until you develop it.Waiting for the pics to come on
A while back I promised to make 180mm 64RC gyuto in 52100 for a member here. That will be my first project, to come up with a right heat treat, grind, finish, etc. My feeling is I will have to go back to a drawing board a few times before this project is completed and I will end up making a few knives that will go to friends and family (seconds). Once I am comfortable about quality (grind, finish, performance), I will then offer to the general public. It will probably be between 2-3 months.Alright, it looks like I won't have a blue Xmas after all. :happy1:
Now, where's that signup sheet?
