A newbie question: Is this general process affect the heat treatment?Step1:
Remove dirt and rust with a rust eraser
If rust is under the handle, remove it!
Remove Chips with a water cooled grinding wheel (90° angle).
3.1 Remove scratches with a sander. I tighten a sander up side down in a vise.
3.1 Beginning sanding with ~P240 water resistant sand paper and a few drops of water! Never use to much water! Take care there is no water inside elektrical parts!
3.2 If there is a similar scratch patern change paper do next grid! I go 240->400->600->800->1500->2000->3000->5000
Notification: P2000 = ~8000 japanese stone
3.3 polish with chrom metall polish
sharpening -> finish
If you have a damascus knife you must etch it after sanding and before the polish paste. Maybe i make a video next time.
