    polishing old kama usuba 240 honyaki with natural stones. I used some synthetics in the beggining when needed to remove more material off. I reset shinogi line and flattened everything above and under it. knife had a mirror polish but I like more this fingerstones polish. anyway, now it is easy to make it mirror.

    thanks benny and Geoff. honyaki is very hard therefore much difficult to shape and grind. but I don't use machines, all is handwork.

    If you eye those knives, you can hang out at bst threads, and pm (message) the sellers that know a lot about it, i think. Some guys order direct from Japanese sellers, et cetera. Good luck with the hunt & have fun! Great photos you posted. I like your work on the ura!
