    So this product is better than Bar Keepers friend? That shine is brilliant, the hammer looks awesome!

    I also sharpen scythe blades with a peening hammer and anvil and both need to be extremely shiny to give good feedback in the sharpening process... i need to learn your skills for just thing thing!

    Can you just get that stuff at a hardware store like Lowe's?

    Also, same with the bar keeper's friend?

    bar keeper's friend can be found in restaurant supply stores, hardware stores, general stores would probably have them. if you can't find any, there's always online. it's only 2 bucks. out here it's more like 4 bucks and change, though.

    flitz is a metal polishing compound.

    I'm not sure this is a good idea. The stainless clad is soft, very soft. On a mirror polished face you see the smallest scratch caused in daily use. My Hiromoto has a mat finish maintained with coarse ScotchBrite.

    Lowes typically carriers Bar Keepers Friend, as do most grocery stores (in the US) in my experience. I believe Ace Hardware carries some Mothers car detailing products, and may carry Bar Keepers Friend as well.
