So I posted these pictures on my Facebook page, which I would encourage all of you to check out and join.https://www.facebook.com/ken.schwartz.984
These blades without handles are en route to Mark. These are all black steel 'ryoba' or gyutos in 210, 240 and 270 mm sizes.
Most of these pictures have rulers in them so you can get a sense of the dimensions.
And there are a few background shots of some naturals in there that I used as a pleasant background to show the edge profile better.
Here's a couple of the pictures. Check out my FB page for the rest of them.
Here's one that shows off the profile of the blade, resting the edge against a yellow Hideriyama natural stone. This shows the natural stone finish on the blade as well as the Kanji. This Kanji says "Richmond" and is a unique translation used exclusively for the Nubatama series. Different Kanji can have the same pronunciation with vastly different meanings. The opposite side of the blade has 'Nubatama' carved into the blade (3 Kanji).
And here's a closeup of the heel of the blade showing the overall taper or profile of the blade
Nubatama blades come in black steel, however he also does shirogami (white) and blue steel blades as well, both traditional and double bevel styles. I have a white steel Deba that Adam rehandled for instance. He also does left handed single blades too. I have a left handed 230 mm yanagi in black steel for instance.
