I think I'm going to polish the 10" as whomever I bought it from seemed to had already removed the patina. I don't like the irregularity, and it has some areas in which are questionable entry points for corrosion. I think I'll polish it, and force a patina maybe just above the shinogi like you illustrate.

I like the 54 piece handle and that grind is mind blowing. I am a fan. I asked my wife if I could spend 300(ish) on improving a knife and she laughed at me. Damn.

Beechin! Love those knives. As soon as I get my garage setup in Colorado I plan to get to work on rehandling and cleaning up my Forgecraft. Love the look of those knives.
