Agreed. ~$235 is my limit without knowing the bonafides or at least having them strongly implied.

Well, thanks Steve. I might have given you a push, but you did all the work. Your polishing is nothing short of amazing and far surpasses anything I've been able to accomplish.

Re: My first Honyaki

I might send you a PM for some tips down the road. I just recieved some pics, I’ll post a link. I’d like to accent the Hamon, I think that’s what it’s called but I’ll deal with that later.
