great presentation - shiny cladding and very smooth spine and choil. No
sanding needed here. I am way impressed with the fit and finish!
So onto the mechanics - Steve's review rated the grind at 5/10, but my example
would deserve better a 6/10 or even 7/10. The edge is visually perfect - clean
and shiny plus rings when you run your finger across it! Really impressive.
I've stropped it with Dialux green and the edge responded really well resulting
in vastly improved sharpness.
Cutting performance is good. A little stickiness from the cladding. I did some
polishing with metal polishing compound to help here..and that seemed to work!
The cladding is very reactive! I've needed to use metal polishing compound to
clean off the beginnings of patina development after only a day or two of use, so
attention is required.
