I want to see your Hamon

Here's a couple of shots I did of this hunter I made. W2 from Aldo.

Fun auto hamon on this 26c3 chef. There's a lot more activity on the right side, odd. As I was grinding post HT, I first thought it was decarb, but no, def a Hamon. I used anti scale and ground a fair amount post HT.

All done on the utility knife. This time I sanded to 1200 grit, dipped for 10 secs in diluted ferric and washed the oxides with a 3M 3000 grit foam pad. It works better than Mother's Mag imo.

Last couple of days have reminded me why I don't really go after hamons. It takes forever to etch and polish and then I'm completely incapable of capturing the results in picture :lol:
