    Half the fun of polishing a knife is putting a patina back on it!

    Earlier last week I modified the tang on my Mazaki 240 to fit this sweet little sycamore piece. Fit is wonderful now. Really nice patinas after a couple shifts in the roll. 82D60A7A-4BE7-4A73-9AC2-1A8BE8C5464E.jpeg

    Patina after one dinner and an onion and a carrot (both not eaten) stress relieve chopping. Basically, I just fine diced them to force patina on it.

    I’ve used this Catcheside for long enough that my pinch grip is outlined by patina. Most of the blade is fairly mottled grey, but there’s some blue peeking out, especially near the edge.

    My new HSC3 laser in 26c3 (spicy white), and a thick blanket of new fallen snow.

    Interesting geometry... why is the primary bevel so prominent? Did you thin the beast? Or did you paint/remove the patina to create a sharp shinogi line?

    Errre, the steak is only so thick. Nothing to do with the geometry of the knife, all about the geometry of the steak [emoji23]
