Brand new Kohetsu AS with no patina at that point, along with a mono carbon Nakiri made by Herder from Solingen.

The Kohetsu AS 210 some hours later..it started to get a nice patine after I cut 4 onions and coated it for 15 minutes with mustard. Really like the stark difference between the AS edge and the SS cladding...

Pics from my cladding patina test. Being unsure of what makers use for carbon cladding I figured I would try the same thing on two different knives and check the results.

Tojiro ITK 150 and Tanaka Damascus 150

After 6 onions, 12 cloves of garlic and 3 lemons PER blade.

I feel they're developing a patina rather similarly. The differences I think are from the blade profile and how much stays in contact with food. I do however prefer the natural forming patina to what I got when I tried forcing it. The forced patina would turn the blade matte gray and black in spots every time.

I've got an ITK 150mm petty, and I've got to say that's a beautiful polish job. That patina looks awesome!!
