I recently acquired this Sakai Sakura (Takayuki) in ginsanko. My photos aren’t great but it has a pretty cool finish. Anyways...it could be thinner towards the tip area. Thinning is no problem for me. But I’ve always had a hard time polish stainless cladding. For cheaper stuff I just do a quick auto sandpaper job+ maybe micro mesh. But this might take more know how. I’ve been able to polish soft iron nicely it’s just a stainless cladding issue. Any tips for stone progressions, or any other advice on how I can return this knife to looking somewhat decent after I thin?
