    Very interesting, I love how you can see the folds as eyelets towards the un ground section and more tight layers where its ground gives us little clues to how its made and the time involved to forge it. It takes some polish to show the folds out and the hamon with out any etching, Will the final fine grit bring back the hamon a little?

    I did try to etch other blade i had but it dose not work that way with Tamahagene, Acid or any other etching dose simply not show all details in Tamahagene

    Hamon will be reviled best after Hadori, basically it will make harder part very hazy and softer part remains like now

    Is this the new standard finish we can expect from JNS?
