Thanks, Maxim. Reloading it fixed the problem, although it happened a couple more times before the video ended (different times, though). Odd.

Nice video! Some questions: why do you break the finger stones into smaller pieces? Why didn't you rinse the blade off before applying the oil? And, finally, how the heck do you keep from cutting yourself?

Very nice. Sorry to hear about the cut. I'm thinking of getting some cut-proof gloves for this kind of stuff, maybe wearing rubber gloves over them for better control.

Do you ever use lemon juice, vinegar, ferric chloride, etc. to bring out hamons? How do they compare with fingerstones?

I use smaller pieces for even out the finish even more the smaller the fingerstone the more they can polish small scratches deeps in steel or some unevenness.
I did not rinse it so oil will polish blade too with some mud from the stone
I use my other fingers as a guide on backside of the blade thats how i have more control :D
But best is to lay blade down on some soft wood and do it, and much safer too :)

I started now to use gloves because i sharpen only freehand now and i get my skin from my fingers grind of by the stones haha :D
It actually helps me to get better, then i can feel when i hit wrong angle, if it make sens. Some Japanese sharpeners use plasters on the pressure fingers. I think gloves is easier to replace.

I always try to experiment with some etching. But right now i get better results only with fingerstones sometimes some wa powders.
The best result i got from etching is with vinegar, but i used it on razor for Hamon. On knife i think its much easier just to rub some finger stones on.
