Polisher recommendations


Recommended Posts

My apologies, I should admit I am unsure if Mr. Benson completed a full course of study but regardless I have been told by American collectors far more learned than me that he’s very well regarded and fully qualified to polish swords.

 

Equally important is that I have found him to be friendly and willing to take time to answer questions from a relative neophyte like me, even if he is busy. I think his willingness to help and answer questions about which blades are worth or need a polish, and which don’t is very helpful to newer people like me.

Bob is a kind-big-hearted person who is very dedicated to nihonto with a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience. He has helped me many times over the years as well.

Hi Stephen. Is the Jimmy H you are refering to Jimmy Hayashi? It would be nice to find a local Togishi.

Here's a Sukekane blade recently polished by Jimmy Hayashi of San Francisco, CA.
