    Okay, great, a Patina is definitely a good sign!

    That's great. Could you post some pics of your prototype/samples that you've tested that show the patina? Thanks.

    My preference is for the logo to be small. Small logo and print.

    Here you go! The one on the bottom has been used for a while, compared to the new sample.

    Big news, guys! I've pulled together my investors and I'm making the order for the first 50 knives along with a sample beforehand! I will only be selling in Canada for now, so sorry to the internationals!
    Ill keep everyone up to date. My next post should be with the new sample.

    Hello all. It is now time for me to start thinking about box design. Are there any artists here that are interested in helping? I'd be happy to negotiate a deal.

    The box logo is done! I just got word that the factory is currently cutting out the blade. I'd give it another week or so before they ship.

    So I just had a chat with my contact over at the factory and it turns out we *may* be able to get a mirror polish, but not yet.

    If this knife sells well, I am considering doing a limited edition with jade g-10 handles and a polished blade, along with some other things which are still a surprise. Any thoughts?

    Personally I don't care for the jade and polished makes no difference to me, performance is all I care about.

    I was thinking that polished may have better food release

    I fine without the polish.

    It looks good. I’d get one if it becomes available if it becomes available in the US.

    For now I'm only doing Canadian, but If it goes well I will expand.

    In general food release is worse on mirror polished blades all else being equal. Most of what you cut in the kitchen is wet, so polishing creates a better seal between the blade and what you cut. Conversely, geometry has more effect on food release than finish on knives with good food release, on knives with bad food release finish has more of an effect, but less polish to a degree is better than mirror polish which is one of the worst for food release. Mirror polish can improve corrosion resistance though.

    Ok, The corrosion resistance shouldn't matter, It is stainless clad.

    That's good to know, though

    The knife has arrived and its great. I Will give some proper updates in a few weeks once I confirm the steel is hap 40.

    What I can say now is that the balance and weight are spot on. It slices like a machine, and the food release isnt terrible for a broad blade like that.

    I look forward to seeing it. I'm sure you've already done it but could you post the measurements please.
    Only available in Canada :(

    I will do that tonight when I get home from work.

    And ONLY the first batch will be Canada specific. depending on the demand I may do CONUS as well... so don't lose hope yet.
