    Oh man that's a slicer Joe. Looks delicious. Tapering well in all directions and the ironwood shines.

    Maybe you can help. I am currently making a wa petty, 200mm, almost a sughiki slicer. My understanding is that petty's are typically single grinds. I'd like to be at least semi-authentic as I am doing the wa handle in ebony and hexagon shape.

    I am okay with whatever grind as I haven't got that close to heat treat yet. Should I pull a single bevel grind or semi convex? The customer won't know the difference and I'll be the sharpener for some time.

    Thanks man,

    Dan

    Thanks Dan, The thing about the single grind is. Some love it , some hate it and most have never tried it. They track differently and can be hard to get used to. The logic behind it makes perfect sense but feels weird in the hand. I have some myself and still not sure if I like it or not. But I don't do much cooking.

    This topic should be named "Small pretty knife" since this is very nice looking one.

    Joe,
    Do you apply a coat of wax, say Renaissance Wax before shooting. Your knives always look so good and polished.

    Thanks!

    That one has a couple coats of Cyanoacrylate (superglue) and then polished. It's kind of a pain in the butt, but the results are great. That's only the second one I've treated this way. I usually just buff em up till they shine.
