    Here's my wife's favorite knife: Misono 180 gyuto. I like this little guy, too!

    I know, it's a little sad. I tell her to wipe it down, but alas...

    Wiped down... or not.
    Used? Absolutely!

    Update on the K-Sab... Salmon, feta cheese and some tomatoes (and some tweaking in Lightroom for full disclosure).

    Wow, that looks really really cool! Perhaps it even deserves to be in that other patina thread where knives look good :rolleyes:

    Thanks! I fear that the crosshatch looking pattern might be a small patch of rust though... Feta cheese is apparently quite salty :eek:

    Disturbing white patina after thinly slicing a few pounds of apples. Beautiful.

    Yeah, that one looks ruined. Better send it to the spa. Or simply throw it away.

    Do you not like swimming pools? What'd they ever do to you?

    Who said I’ve anything against them? I might love them! I might even be a swimming pool - although that’s of course not very likely.

    That’s the most austere patina I’ve seen so far. Understated restrained elegance…
