Yeah, usually Blue #2 doesn't get that dark for me, but this one is nice and dark, shows the pop contrast line and then some more subtle grey above the lamination line. I gotta clean it up and re etch it though; it slipped on my Hideriyama and got the stone scuff marks on one side :(

Always a fan of your work Taz, I wanted to ask what did you use to etch the kohetsu?

I used Ferric Chloride from Radio Shack very diluted in water, like 10:1 water to acid.
