    "i love the hamon on it"
    yeah, and thats the reason why this thread is called:
    Love your lamination? Show your line!


    Edit: This thread has been on topic for 30 posts, something of a record. Some nice looking blades here.

    Just a lamination show, does it matter who makes the knife?

    Regards

    Good for you! Love the grain/banding in the cladding of the first knife. Nice lamination on both!

    Polished my Fujiyama 210 petty last night. Nice lamination line, I think.

    I seem to recall a thread here somewhere about makers that do their own lamination vs other makers who do not. However I’m having a difficult time finding it. Am I just imagining this thread or does it really exist and I just suck at searching for threads?

    One of the knives I won during his instagram give-away. Pretty freaking amazing That happened. The second one, with the stacked birch wood handle, was one that he had made to play around with. I saw it in the background on some of his ig pics and inquired. Managed to buy that one. I's also quite amazing.
    Steffan, in my personal interactions, has been nothing shy of a kind, easy going gentleman. I'd certainly recommend him and his work any time.
