The cladding is usually more reactive than the core steel, hence why the core steel is blue whilst the cladding is already grey from patina
Hey,
yeah I get that. But i wondered why the core steel will take color so incompletely - it's totally blue towards the cutting edge, but towards the cladding it's still completely white. It's very regular for the whole length of the blade, so I wonder what the reason for this is.

I washed this blade with soap and water first and dried it. Then I cut four yellow onions. I made sure to try and rub all the blade in onion juice while cutting said onions. The blade is pre-1960 Henckels steel recently re-habed by me:

Finally played with my Toyoma dammy at work for 2 days. I never used a workhorse type of knife for 15 hours a day at work and it was kind of challenging to do. Hands got tired and the longer I was working at the kitchen, the heavier this knife gets. Well here’s the patina after 2 days of dicing up lots of mire poix.

You can send it to me for disposal if it's to heavy for you.
