    How to clean up grind marks on face of blade?

    What are the methods to cleaning up grind marks left from the stone?

    I would love to have it be a mirror polished. Would I do this with a motorized buffing wheel?

    I've been thinning my Hiromoto AS wagyuto 300mm. DwarvenChef recommended that I get this in Oct 2009, in knifeforums.com It's my first and only gyuto and I love it.

    if you have a strop and if the scratches aren't deep, you can strop the blade face til it gets a mirror finish. or buy sandpaper in increasing higher grit and hand sand it til shiny. =D

    Wet dry automotive sandpaper in increasing grits, then micromesh polishing pads, then finish with flitz. Then wash, dry and rub with tsubiki oil.

    I like teir ability to polish and remove scratches, though I may be missing a step with some sandpaper as this thread would allude.
    Also, the seem to go relatively quickly with regular use, does anyone have a different vender that I could consider?

    Also, are these goo for removing rust or a patina? Havent tried that yet.

    Thanks!

    Remove the scratches with sandpaper or on the stones, then take it to a 1000 grit paper finish (just stay with the same piece until it becomes very worn and completely loaded, equivalent to a 2k stone finish). It will give you a misty kind of mirror. Just make sure there aren't any deep scratches left. Then hit it with Mothers mag & aluminium polish on a rag and you will get results like this.
