    Not perfect, but a couple of my early attempts. I definitely need to find some creative images to reflect...

    ^ beautiful work on both parts!!

    Here's a few I finished up recently... let me just say that doing a recurved mirror edge is something that requires patience and finesse hehe

    Great thread, incredible edges guys, you all have some amazing skills.
    Here's some of mine, freehanded on waterstones up to 5k, then stropped.
    Not as nice as some of yours (and some easier steel) but I'm still trying to improve myself :)

    1095 is almost cheating compared to some of the steels shown ITT, but nonetheless, here's mine:
