    The top one in the first pic looks almost suji like… must be the angle.

    Yeah, it's the angle and it is furthest one and slightly tilted, it's not suji-like at all in person.

    Yeah, I didn't do this polish, I think it's the original. It's mirror and very cloudy where the Hamon is. I did this once for my Togashi, this is a really nice finish OOTB. No idea if there's a name for it.

    Restored the base of this little thing a bit (half assed job but I lost patience and wanted to just use the stone). Put on a few coats of neo clear Cashew lacquer.

    Okudo Tenyo suita 223x85x47mm. Beautiful Ocher colours, orange renge, one of the most amazing kata I have seen, and it is amazing to use.
