First hamon attempt & failure

Recommended Posts

It is not unusual that the hamon looks better on the first go at etching and later attempts at re-polishing using only higher grits and re-etching will not show nearly as much contrast. Having said that, it is possible to bring back the hamon good looks by multiple cycles of re-etching and polishing with paste-based abrasives. And I mean multiple.
