    Right on!! Thanks for the info! I found that the 400 G sand paper on a flat plate is working wonders!

    I still dont know what or how to bring out the pattern of the damascus in a traditional sense? I can etch the blade like I normally would, but that seems to be counter productive on this project..

    Will the damascus pattern develop at some point in the polishing, or is it the stones used that make the pattern visible?

    Natural stones could bring out the pattern, I think there are ways to do so without naturals but someone with more experience would have to explain that. I could send you a piece of uchigumori if you would like to try that for polishing.

    The uchigomori are natural finger stones; Maksim's page about these. They won't give a high contrast like etching will, more hazy instead. PM me an address if you would like to try the uchigomori.

    Let's see those pictures.

    Here are a few. Its hard to show what it really looks like in a photo, Im sure you guys knife what I mean.

    Still working on this, and getting quite a rush from seeing the blade finish take shape. I hope that when I get to 5 and 8K that the damascus pattern starts to show?

    The higher you polish on most all synthetics, the less the pattern shows up.

    Fingerstones do this best, but there are some steel combos that certain fingerstones don't like. It's trial and error.

    You can always etch it, no?

    I can but was shooting for natural stone etched look if possible. I was thinking I could add a little vinegar to my water when working the stones and it may bring out the pattern.. But that seemed like cheating.

    If it's a mix of carbon steels, I suppose if the polishing doesn't bring out the pattern, maybe a forced patina would help? But I have no clue, just throwing out an idea.

    It is a mix of High carbon steels. If I remember correctly its a 3 steel mix.
