    Starting to form a patina on my new Mazaki and I can definitely see why people keep the patina on. It looks lovely

    This is the patina on my Konosuke after 10 years of use. More grey than anything else now, but still colourful if you get it in the right light!

    Wow, that is really beautiful, especially the wrought iron. What is that core steel?

    Munetoshi butcher... deepest blues I’ve ever had on a knife. Not that it really comes through in the pic.

    Ok, so that’s not fair. Let me have my glory for another hour before you destroy me.

    Pretty sure if I tried to photograph that knife it would turn out looking like a grey blob, though...

    I didn't use any Photoshop/digital filters or color corrections on these pics but filters may be very helpful.

    The sabaki as well :) Gorgeous knife!

    But this one won't be used very often.
    Actually I really, really love eating or "cooking" meat.
    No problem with fish but I can't touch, see or even cut big meat parts. I only see corpses and the blood on the smurfing board :confused:

    Now that's original. Where did you get the inspiration?

    My guess would be shrooms or acid to go with the patina. Just kidding...that it gorgeous. Absolutely love that blade.

    wow that’s incredible. Thanks for sharing. It really makes you think about how to make your knife YOUR knife. How to personalize it.

    May I ask how you got the rose and diamond engraved? Did Watanabe do a custom build per your request, or you had the work done elsewhere?

    In a rare event my Dalman rust bucket dislodged a favoured Gyuto from my permanent block. As I used my new favourite I was delighted by the patina that formed from daily use. Here’s a few pics ...
