150mm Kiritsuke in 154CM and Katalox

Next in the petty kitchen series, this 150mm kiritsuke in 2.6mm-thick mill-finish 154CM, with G10 bolster and katalox handle. This version of my maker’s mark may be a little large for this piece… I just ordered smaller ones in a fresh stencil. Hardness targeted at ~61.5Rc in keeping with the style. Sharpening it was fun! Edge is ~20d on the ground face with a ~10d microbevel on the back.
