My second post here, and it's related to my first one:
Identifing a japanese tanto
http://myArmoury.com/talk/viewtopic.php?p=313267

After your opinions and some others, I've decided to tackle this project by myself.
Took me a while, but for those who are interested, see my video below for the process and result:

There are some before and after shots attached too if you don't want to watch the entire video.

Let me know what you think! Happy

I'm not really big on Japanese weapons, but THAT is beautiful! You did an excellent job of breathing new life into an old blade. Your polish job is first rate. Big Grin ....McM

Hannes,

Really appreciated your video, liked the "how I did it" details. Your success just might have inspired me to attempt restoring a similar Japanese blade. And my compliments on your patience ....

Cheers,
Dan

Thanks for the kind words!
It did take a lot of patience, especially the seemingly endless grinding/polishing got really tiresome after a while.
Did not enjoy that part very much after a few days/hours, but really liked doing all the rest though Happy
