    Removing lacquer from Tadafusa KU

    Hi

    I have problem with removing lacquer finish from my Tadafusa KU 165 santoku. I've tried with acetone and lacquer thinner wiping the coating for almost 25 min but no results.
    Looks like only technique that works is scratching with sharp object, but i don't wont to damage the blade or KU finish. It is my project knife but nevertheless. Maybe any advice

    Sounds strange. If its truly lacquer then acetone or thinner will remove the coating instantaneously.

    Since it is your project knife, I would suggest that a stone will easily remove it.

    Maybe take a few photos so people can see what you are talking about.

    If acetone, nail polish remover, or thinner and elbow grease hasn't taken it off. It ain't lacquer.

    Are you removing the lighter or darker layer when scrapping?
