    Wow, that's a really nice polish you made, Jon. What stones did you use? Not that naturals of the same name will be the same...I'm just curious.

    That is one pretty Knife, you must have some special jewelers spectacles to get that kind of finish

    I've seen Jon perform this process, and it does seem sorta like a magic trick.

    Well, he did give away some clues..

    a) Hamaguri edge. unless you rock it and that even it will be hard to get it so uniform...

    b) and reading on Dr. Naka's 5 part Kitaeji maintenance, it should NOT be a stone that gives mirror or semi mirror shine as that will destroy all contrast.

    c) Getting it so uniform without the finger job can be quite challenging.

    d) Could be the swarf from one of the Jons Synthetic stones then.. Not the mirror polish grit....; maybe a mix

    Just pondering... Excellent finish and skill
