    My singles are starting to get a mirror finish between shig and lamination line. Would prefer the satin (prob wrong term) finish.

    Stones are 2k gesshin to 5K rika.


    try a King 800, before the other stones. it won't be quite like that, but it'll likely create more contrast.

    In the picture with the cracked up white wheel (about halfway down), is that a typical thickness of an unfinished yanagiba? It seems really thick!
