I hope I'm posting this question in the right section.
Being the first time making a knife handle, I forgot to mask my stainless steel blade while contouring & shaping the handle and the bolster using sandpaper. So the blade got visible scratches, and it looks ugly.
I seek your advice on how to minimize or remove those scratches. Can I use honing compound and handbuff it or I have to use buffing wheel on drill? And which buffing material to use, muslin or all cotton?
Any views and suggestions are very much appreciated.
Kindly look at the pic attached.
