Hey guys, I'm a 15 year old who loves to build knives and my newest project is building a Katana like machete.
The steel that Im using is tool steel, and I was wondering. Im using the classic clay + charcoal mix for the hamon clay and would I still to be able to polish the machete with jewelers Rouge?
without killing the hamon lines after the quench and temper.
Il will post pictures before the quench.
And whats are the steps of making a hamon line? and idk if this matters but, I use bark for my forge fuel if this matters.
