More Hamons

Recommended Posts

Citric acid etch and post etch polished seems to be dialed in. Still optimizing pre-etch polish.

All NJSB W-2. Hamon1800 clay and Paragon furnace.

Nice!  Are you still doing the full-on traditional togishi waterstone thing, or are you sneaking some gaijin belt technique into the mix?

Beautiful!

As Alan asked, all hand work polishing, or was there some belt-Jitsu utilized?

Beautiful!  Is the Hamon1800 the clay you developed?  I will third the curiosity about what polish you are using.

Geez! I kinda skipped out on this thread. Maybe because I was waiting to have a definitive answer. I don’t know about definitive but more to add to the conversation. This is a redo of the small knife above. Polish to 1200 redline paper. Brush on 2% nitric acid. Polish off with 3M Trizact 3000 and 5000 paper. 3 times.
