"Mountain Crest" mustard patina just applied to HHH nakiri. One of my most prized cutters!
Huh, usually I’m not so keen on mustard patinas, but that’s one of the most natural looking I’ve seen.
Ditto...... Very pleased with the end result! And, thank you.
I like it!
It kinda looks like wagyu to me.
I usually don't care for those, but this was a really nice job! Looks fabulous.
Cheflarge, is there a certain way you applied the mustard to get that pattern?
Yes. Working now. Will post later.
Thoroughly clean knife in warm soapy water. Dry well. Room temperature yellow mustard (higher acid % the better). Stiff bristled paint brush. I usually put the mustard in a bowl for "dipping" the brush in too. With brush loaded with mustard use a dotting-swoosh type of motion to coat the entire blade. Let sit & air dry for fifteen minutes (set timer). Wash off with warm soapy water & enjoy your patina.
That's a nice looking nakiri chef. Curious about dimensions/weight?
Triple H "mystery carbon" (pretty sure its 1095)
Weight: 215 grams
Height at heel: 60mm
Randy's western handle configuration, super contoured, competition grade curly koa. Love this knife!!!
That's just about prime in my opinion... and i really like 1095.
