    some recently complete sharpening/repair jobs

    I know i always forget the before pics... sorry.

    The masamotos were in for rehandling and sharpening. The honyaki was also refinished, polished, etc.

    The nenohi kiritsuke was in for a broken tip repair and sharpening (as well as general cleanup) and the takobiki (forged by shiraki-san and ground by murray carter) was in for sharpening repair and rehandling.

    Got a better pic of the tip on the kiritsuke? I'm curious to see what you did with it.

    Nice work Jon! I can almost see your finger print in that one shot.

    How much of a time commitment was involved in polishing with the finger stones Jon. They were beautiful.

    Hours of work were involved with the mirror finish, but the rest were easier. The honyaki took me about an hour to do though.

    Jon, the finish on the honyaki is stunning. Would you be able to achieve close to the same result using wet/dry sand paper and consistently increasing the grit?

    I've gone up to 12000 grit Micromesh, and it doesn't look nearly like that.

    White rouge and a buffing wheel work though.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    I finish off with Cape Cod polish after fine sandpaper. It does give a nice mirror-like look.
