    If I understand correctly, you've replaced the "misty" (kasumi, no 't') finish with a mirror finish, is that correct? Pics would help. If so, you may need to use natural stones to get back the misty finish.

    Sounds to me like he's referring to the shinogi line.

    Yes, now we really want pics!

    TS; There is no "katsumi line" or even "kasumi line" If you talking about habuchi/hamon it's no big deal, a finger stone will fix that easily.
    If your talking about the shinogi, then you may be in trouble!
    Some terminology here; http://www.samurai-sword-shop.com/bl...of-the-katana/
    As said, some pics would help.
