HT1 HIDDEN TANG - FINISHING

To finish the handle I worked it with 150 grit sand paper. In some areas a small length of dowel helps get in the inside curves.







I then move up to 220 with some Windex. Then on to 400.








After 400 I move over to the buffing wheel. Using the black compound to reveal and scratches that need to be sanded out further.

Once it's very shiny, I hit the stainless steel with some green Scotch-Brite pad to give it a brushed look.


Once the blade is revealed, scrape any excess epoxy off. I like to clean the blade with Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish.

This is close to done.



The only things remaining is to sharpen and buff some Renaissance wax on the knife.
