    This is just one of the kiridashis that I am working on, which were just made up of end cuts and scraps of 1084. They are actually a pretty useful little cutter, and it gives me a platform to try some surface treatments. This one was sculpted quickly on my two inch contact wheel then given a 1.5 hour soak in ferric before hitting the high spots with some 1000 grit. Kind of interesting looking and a good time killer while waiting on epoxy to dry

    I like it, sweet little knife! Is that a chisel grind? Do you mean a ferric acid bath? Where do you get something like that?

    Yes it's a one sided chisel grind. The chisel grind has secondary bevel and a mild swedge. You are correct, the etch was done with a ferric chloride soak. You can buy it at most computer stores as pcb etchant and I got mine from radio shack. The etch was supposed to be 30 to 45 minutes until I got chatting with the neighbour outside and forgot it in there for an extra hour.
