Ok thanks, guess patience is the key, always looking for shortcuts :thumbs: My boy is at that stage with his blade just now, been rubbing for about a day now and still hasn't got the marks out of the bevel.

Finishing a blade is the worst!

But allways better to finish an unhardened blade than a hardened >60HRC blade... :(

So I won't go for a mirrow polish.

I normally finish with the grinder to about 150, than by hand with 200, 360, 400

Sometimes I etch the blades in vinegar and make a finish with scoth brite, etch egain, scotch brite...

That's the result on my edc
