    Banding is my favourite aesthetic... t has the 'interest' of pattern welding without being so gaudy! Good job bringing it out

    the etch itself is pretty easy. Didnt take that long. Just 3-4 cycles of lemon juices. Just tried mu beat not to touch the above the hamon with the lemon juice. Then last part which i think is not necessary. Just did it since i have some around. Used some nugui (red mixed with black). Now the mirror polishing is the hard part. That wasnt done by me. Wish i could take credit but its done by JKI

    does a mirror finish like this produce "stiction" on food?

    My Ikeda was a suction cup with a mirror, and a ghost with a patina. Made a massive difference in that particular knife. Then you see a Mizuno mirror just demolish a potato. Grind plays a part.

    At the beginning I wanted to replicate a bit the finish from my Ikeda and finally the banding brought other ideas

    Magnificent result :)
    Very beautiful hamon line.
    I love the "damascus like" pattern on the dark part.
    It reminds me the polishing style on a old Katana blade.
    Some Nugui for final touch ?

    So, I googled this expression, and it told me that in German, people mostly use it sarcastically. Is this true? ;)

    I hadn't any timer but this has been quite long! But probably half as long as for the Ikeda, so it's ok ;-)

    @nutmeg... perfect 10 every time... 11 on the spinal tap scale...

    The way you bring out the banding makes me very envious. Beautiful work. Kudos sir!
