Just received these two stunning blades: FT B#2 and FM W#1. The pictures don't describe how incredibly beautiful the new FT line is. Stunning! Also I like how thin the grind on these White #1 are compared to my recent Blue #2

Yes, yes they are. Figured the walnut sayas would go tastefully with the Khii laurel and ebony handles.

Can you give a breakdown on the differences in grind between the two? As in the difference between FM and FT.

I'm curious about the FT finish/ polish, as in after use and patina how it'll look. And especially after patina "removal". Looks great, just wondering how long that beautiful polish lasts

My FT is scheduled for delivery today, and you best believe that I’m gonna do my damndest to figure out how to recreate the original finish :lol: I have a few ideas based on the photos I’ve seen thus far, but seeing it in person will really tell me a lot.

Chocolate dip!

I'd be very interested in hearing more on this, not just the chocolate dip but other means as well.
