    I did try to glue paper to the fingerstones but it did not work for me that well
    But maybe i used wrong paper.

    I think powder works very very good, but you can also use mud from your fingerstones as powder
    When the knife is covered with mud from your fingerstones wile you polishing your knife use cotton cloth with a lot of pressure to even out the finish.

    I'm sure that you have to use the special Japanese paper that cost 10 times as much. Having bought some of those real stones, you know how that goes, right? John White is the guy who told me about rottenstone. Nick Wheeler is the one who wa using the other abrasive powder. I will ask him what it was.

    If you used washi paper then you got the right stuff. Did you use cashew lacquer? cashew lacquer needs water to cure right so the stones should be wet

    Unfortunately Urushi is similar to poison Ivy and causes severe allergic reactions. Cashew is much easier to handle and dries a lot faster with same effect as Urushi.
    I have tried both and Cashew is the lacquer of choice for me.
