    My polished Sakai Yusuke

    My Sakai Yusuke had very deep patina and it started to get very sticky with food so i decided to clean it up and take some pictures.

    I'll slowly add more pictures of my other knives

    I used 120, 320, 600, 1000 and 1200 sand paper. not very polished but good enough.





    What do you guys think?

    Looks good to me--fairly even haze and consistent scratch pattern that should hold up well and conceal the odd scratch from stones or food.

    If patina is getting rough, you may polish it somewhat with cork and stone mud (J2000 or higher) without abrading it completely as you did. Force a new patina and you will be fine.

    Looks like decent work to me...better than the work I did recently.
    Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.

    The result is not bad at all, I agree. Would you want a more polished result the grids should be much closer, especially in the coarse range.

    Looks good, but make sure you're hitting the tip, and following the angle/curve when sharpening. I looks a bit untouched. But, nice!

    Thank you for the advice every one.

    I was trying to remove some old deeper scratches while getting rid of the patina.

    Next time ill try to use closer grid numbers to get more better end results.

    Lefty i think i went a little higher with the angle on the tip, i have to be careful.

    Hey, I like the finish. In my mind, satin is where it's at! Nice work on it. I was just afraid I saw some birdbeaking rearing its ugly head. Just wanted to make sure you were watching out for it
