Polised the five tanto blades today, virtually blood-free. I keep rubbing one knuckle against the belt, and even with gloves on I've worn off enough skin to have a small wound.
Otherwise, it went very well. I have to say I rather like these NORAX belts from Norton abrasives, they're even better than 3M's Trizact belts.
Tomorrow, I bring out the hamons. Or not. We'll just have to see.
