Thanks for the video Shaun. Was that the factory edge?

Yes sir! That was 100% factory edge, no stropping or anything between ingredients.

Factory edges on these are like a 3k refinement with extra teeth.

Best info I can find on the steel used in the core (ats-314) is that it's a nickel stainless steel with very fine grain structure. Used mainly in high-end scissors, I think the cheapest scissors you can get in this steel start around $400-500 or so. It's a good stuff! :D

Was this ground by Lambson with Yoshikane Damascus, or all sourced by Yoshikane?

How is the grind? Looks like maybe just a partial convex, if not flat, but viewing from a mobile device so it is hard to tell?

These are entirely sourced from Yoshikane.
