If you polish that, you are going to end up with a metal toothpick. Leave it as is and keep it as a nice display.

both the heavy corrosion and the 'cleaning' with acid have damaged the blade beyond repair. There is not enough metal left to restore the shape which is as important as the HAMON.

It might look ugly for Nihonto community as it not smooth n shinny but the durability again rusting, the metallurgy of the sword..for me who are iron guy, this sword tells lots of information metallurgy wise.
Anyway it will be preserve forever as my first Katana ^^

I think it looks better unpolished. It adds to the character and will make a nice conversation piece.
