So today I felt like refinishing my Takeo Murata petty because i got some sandpaper in the mail from aliexpress (only one side this time, it really takes a bit of time doing this manually). I used the sandpaper and my king 1000 stone to achieve this result and I must say that I am pretty chuffed about it for a first faux sumi wabi sabi refinish! I would love some tips on how to get better with this!

You did a very decent job with the 1000 stone. The best way to see whether you did good enough job on the 1k is to take it to say a 3-6k stone and see whether you will uncover some scratches from sandpaper or some lowspots that were masked by the (relatively soft) king stone.

Thanks for the tip! I’ll do that when I will tackle the other side
