I grabbed the Watanabe couldn’t resist it. Right out of the box and on some stones. Plan to muck up the polish tomorrow with heavy wedding prep. Polished briefly on red natsuya and Bigfoot print Shiro Suita couldn’t be happier with this heavyweight. View attachment 93132
That shiro suita is gorgeous man

Dude if you ever see something you wanted sell out, 98% chance it’s someone on the forum 😂 It’s happened to me.
It was early morning and I passed out for like 5 mins after my bid, came back and it was over...

Really sucked, I'm still sore about that one 😂😂
Lots of lines in the same fishing hole. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had the very same reactions. My main frustrations are with knives I’m over trying to buy knives from over there.. It’s a cool stone not perfect by any stretch it’s thirsty as hell has a couple inclusions but for the most part it’s pretty solid stone. Hope you all hook that next one there’s always a next one.

Testing blade above on different stones. It's getting along with differing Karasu.

This side is what I believe is an Ohira mine Karasu. It really brings out the banding in the jacket iron. More than I would expect from a non-suita.

And then other side is from a Nakayama karasu. The fineness is noticeably higher. Just toying until I find the right stone to match so the polish is all over the place.
