    Phenomenal work! One of the best polishes I've seen!

    My far more humble contribution to the thread. Progression: Natsuya, nakayama suita, soft uchi, hard uchi.

    Fantastic work, Steve! I'll have to send mine to you to make it look like this. ;o)

    Got an uchigumori from Nutmeg over a month ago and just now had a few moments to play around with it. Nothing like most of the polish work here, but I’m fairly pleased for my first go-at-it. Tried it out on my used and abused Takeda nakiri and got this finish after just a few minutes. Can’t wait to get it going on my single bevel. Any tips/feedback welcome.

    Based on scratches on the cladding i'm guessing it's a nice softie! try working it a little longer, let the mud develop and those should turn into a wonderful haze.

    Actually, this uchigumori is very fine and doesn‘t produces scratches that can be seen on pictures made with a cellular phone.

    What I see is you went from 800-1000#grit diagonal to the edge directly to the uchigumori.
    A finer synth is missing like 2k parallel or almost parallel to the edge.

    Worked on the 2 blades on the left tonight. Made a lot of progress this year, and though I’ve plenty of room for improvement; I’m finally starting to really enjoy the results.

    Finish was given by the Uchigumori beast on which this blade is resting.

    Started dabbling with finger stones thanks to some complimentary stones from Ben! Nowhere near your guys’ finesse, but I was pretty proud of this polish. Seems like this is the perfect thread to show it! Kasumiiiiiii

    First time posting in this sub so I am nowhere near the level you guys have! 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!

    Very nice blades. Who made those and do you have measurements for the smaller one? I really like it!

    A few years back i was going through my late grandfathers workshop - he was a handyman's handyman - and came across this beast of a cleaver. Brought it home from CA to TX to give it some much needed love. Used a handheld belt sander to remove the rough stuff. Then a progression of wet sandpaper up to 800 grit if i recall correctly. Went to about 2k grit on the bevel. Used olive wood for handle scales. My cousin and her husband lived close to grandpa and were very good to him so i gifted. They raise pigs and a few cattle for sale/food so I've sharpened their knives from time to time. Recently hooked them up with a pair of Munetoshi butchers. Changed their world. :)

    Don't have the blade, but do have the pics and memories. He was a great man.
