Mark had Shigeki grind these like the Tanaka Sekiso, so they are stupidly thin behind the edge; I torqued it a bit when it stuck into the board and took a small chip out of the blade, so I took the chip out and made it a bit thicker behind the edge so it wouldn't chip as much for the person who gets it. F&F is below the Sekiso F&F, sharp spine and choil. Blade finish is nice and works to keep stuff from sticking. Ferrule was some Redwood Burl that was dyed Black, but ended up being a very very dark green with nice metallic flash to it!
