Hey y'all, while I love seeing new knives in pristine almost museum like conditions, I also want to see some wabi-sabi'd knives. You know, the one you always reach for no matter what task, but especially dirty jobs! The one that's stuck you through thick and thin. Or even gifted to you from a predecessor who wielded it as a hard use tool. Below is mine. Started off as a cai dao my aunt used, then sat neglected in a drawer for who knows how long. I have 0 clue about it apart from it being a cai dao, it is ss cladded with a mystery carbon, likely an SSS brand (some eBay seller has a similar knife, but no etching) I sharpened it up to a working edge, sanded the choil and spine, and re-handled it (very amateur job). Wish I bought a thicker handle though.
