    Another project off the bench. A small gyuto, monosteel 1.2519 and hardened to RC64 with pronounced distal taper, 4mm at the heel and 1mm thick 25mm back from the tip. Soon to have a wa handle and be gifted to someone who will probably let it rust in a dishwasher :/

    Impressive taper! I'd even consider getting myself a dish washer if it's required to own one of those.

    Photobucket are charging $300 a year to host pictures now. Even if their site worked properly that would be expensive, but considering how rubbish the experience was I'm switching to Cubeupload - it's simpler and runs on donations.
