Nothing special really...

About how to prevent too much rust on your blades...

Using before some grinding and sharpening stones of different sizes, as I could not success really to obtain a very clear and shiny blade for some of my ancient Khukuri, then I tried to do it myself by using some leaves of sand paper of... different sizes...
with also some good quantity of water...



AND IT WORKS ! ! !

In revenge, for some real samurai swords, I wouldn't dare to do the same thing at all...
because of the tempered line on the edge... Hamon...

Hi Daab,

Great advice: a little sand paper, some water and good old fashioned elbow grease is the perfect recipe to get a nice satin finish on any blade.

But yes, with Japanese swords that have a real hamon - you need to do things a little differently (google "hybrid polishing" for that recipe!) :-)
