I've always liked to sharpen large bevel blades and a Yanagi is like icing on the cake. This one was larger than the one I made a video with but just as much fun to sharpen. When it arrived (sorry no pics) the tip was rather round and in the center the edge had a good size chip. I started with the Nubatama 120 Bamboo stone re-setting the geometry, fixing the chip, and bringing the tip back to nice and pointy. I moved on to my 400 bamboo stone to prep for the 2k bamboo stone but it didn't work out as expected so I went with old faithful, my 1k & 6k Arashiyama stones, with a final finish on the Nubatama Han-Han stone. The Han-Han stone is around 10k maybe higher in finish and producing wildly sharp edges easily giving a comfortable face shave.

I really liked the contrast of the metals produced by the progression of stones, just making something sharp gets boring after a while so ya gotta make it look good too :D

Looks like a great job. Hopefully someday I can steady out my hands and get some consistent results like that. Is that a Misono Yanagi? Couldn't think of anyone else who puts dragons on their knives.

Jason is a fantastic job on my Doi White Steel Dragon yanagi. I cannot be happier. Hats off to you sir.

Best,

Hi Jason,

Nice work.

Here is the knife for those that are interested but don't want to hunt for it:

Hi !! Nice work

If you want an even more even finish on the steel, you can use a soft uchigumori fingerstone, it will just even out the contrasts.

look at my small picture below. Im more into the good looks than a razor edge :) Well almost :)
