Well done. That pattern is more pronounced that almost any I've ever seen.

Do you have any more WIP pics ?

I must admit I had to go look it up, Hitachi edge steel. https://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/blogs/news/64514117-a-quick-summary-of-hitachi-carbon-steels-common-in-knives 

I am not versed in the Japanese culture when comes to knives and steel. I have learned a lot since I joined this forum a long time ago. But everyonce in a while I have to still look something up!!

That is a very impressive knife. The pattern becomes apparent when you see the billet picture! I can almost visualize how you forged it down and then streched the pattern back, as forged out the steel for the knife!!  Very nice!!
