I'll get started with the questions then. Do people generally polish the blade after the final hardening or is it worth doing it before?

 

Cheers, Rob.

you want all the grinding done before for the heat treating if you working with hand tools , i would send it sharp because you gonna strugle to remove metal after heat treat .

400 grit is where you want it before heat treating if you shooting for mirror finnish !

I'm intending to cut my handle material by hand with a coping saw. I'll then sand the side I will be placing against the blank on a sanding block so it is as flat as possible. Hopefully that'll do the trick.
