Nice- Wish I had all the tools.

It didn't seem very sharp though?

Not knowing much about knife making, what is the 'clay' applied to each side and fired? And what effect/purpose does it provide?

I believe they call it the hamon so the edge and the rest of the blade cool at different rates, part of the hardening process.

The designer of the gun had clearly not been instructed to beat about the bush. 'Make it evil,' he'd been told. 'Make it totally clear that this gun has a right end and a wrong end. Make it totally clear to anyone standing at the wrong end that things are going badly for them. If that means sticking all sort of spikes and prongs and blackened bits all over it then so be it. This is not a gun for hanging over the fireplace or sticking in the umbrella stand, it is a gun for going out and making people miserable with.'

Watch the tomato= It compresses and doesn't slice to start. It's not even sliced through. The cantaloupe shouldn't compress like it does.

"Sharpening on the slack of the 2x72 with very high grit belt"= Surprising he didn't finish it off with some nice Japanese Water Stones or something.

Yeah, those rice paper thin slices of tomato are really compressing it. Confused
