I'm happy, the polisher sent me these two pics today he finished the blade. Now it goes directly to make a shira saya. And maybe, i hold it before december in hands.

 

I can only show the two pictures with before and after.

 

Before:

After:

Now i go to drink a beer on this nice evening.

Wow! The polisher fixed the chips in the edge(ha) and everything?

 

How the heck did you even know it was worth polishing?

 

Very good job by whoever polished that one! And good eye????

Hi All,

 

I thought that I would share my recent addition to my collection. It's a Chidori jumonji yari signed by Echigo no kami Kanesada (Terukane). It is newly polished, papered (TH) and in new shirasaya. It's such a beautiful little yari and it's hard to stop admiring it since I received it. The photos are not the best but I think you can see the comparison for a before and after.

 

Regards

 

John C.

Thanks for kinds words.

When I bought it, there was rust and scratches. The hamon was difficult to see but I thought it would be gunome.

After polish it turn to be more hitatsura than Gunome.

Nice examples! This thread makes me wish I had taken before photos of some of the ones I have had polished in the past.
