whats surprising?  Theres nothing odd at all about how it looks.. for this knife or even much more expensive ones.
its the line where the cladding and core steels meet... the lamination line
its actually a different diamond stone that isnt good for soft stainless cladding... the 1k and 6k are fine for that
sweet... glad you're having fun with it... i always love how these kinds of knives patina.  Is it as thin as you expected?
for what its worth, i'm also around to answer questions after you watch the videos :)
yeah... i was wondering what happened there, but its probably because this is a kitchen knife part of the forum and there might be better places to post this
for what its worth, vg-10 is average at best when compared to many other steels common in higher-end knives
they look identical... there is a difference in feeling on the stones though.
i think that you will find that if you ask them to do everything we ask them to do for our gesshin ginga line, the price you pay will be higher than you think.
even with a big wheel, its not always possible.  Its very important to not overdo the uraoshi.
