So curious why my new Dalman’s patina looks like this… are these simply the scratch marks from the finish? Doesn’t seem like it…

Possibly some residual polishing wax on blade? Did you wash it before use?
I didn’t wash it the first time, but I did wash it after that and used it for slicing some raw meat after and it didn’t seem to make a difference. Certainly not complaining, knife cuts wonderfully and I love how unique it looks. It just looks… crystalline almost.

Looks great! Awesome knives aren’t they?
Everything a nakiri should be and more. Was quite worried about it feeling fragile, but not at all. Easily one of my favorite knives. Only bad thing is that I use other knives a lot less now haha.

It is KMS forum gyuto, mono 1.2562. It is surprisingly very good.
Figures; that knife is haunting me. Wished I had been reading KMS back then; it's one of those knives that hits my buttons every time I see one even when I don't know what it is.

It's weird, because from the specs I wouldn't think I would like it, but somehow it works very well in use. One of the knives that made me reconsider my preferences and made me realize that unfortunately all the measurements that we like to talk about still don't tell you everything until you actually use a knife.

It is also visually pleasing to me for some reason🤷‍♂️
