Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Yep.  I had yet another project...
I recently got a kiridashi for my woodworking.
Not a real top end, super nice kiridashi, but something that I could afford more easily.  The kiridashi had grind marks on the edge, the handle and blade cover was quite rough.
So I sanded all the wood down and reshaped the very tip of the blade cover a bit.  Of course I had to refinish the entire thing now.  :)
Then I sanded, sanded, and yet moooooore sanding on the blade's edge. What appeared to be a flat grind had two slight depressions in it that all that sanding revealed.  I finally got that surface flat and smooth.
I think it is a fair bit nicer than it was when I got it, but it is still not top end quality.  Maybe someday.
Perhaps not a prototypical knife, but a Japanese marking knife none the less.

Oh very nice! I think it's safe to say that no matter what the perceived quailty of the knife or tool is, it just seems to work and perfrom better when it's all cleeaned and prettied up. Particularly if you're the one who put in the elbow grease!

Nice job on this one....

Whatever the raw materials were, you clearly worked it brilliantly!

On another note, iKC just might need a kiridashi group...
