Hey all. So snagged a 300mm one and gave it the works. Sharpened and polished. Thanks for looking.

The final two stones were a wakasa and then Uchigumori on the soft steel for kasumi and Narutaki on the hard core steel. Makes the whole surface glass smooth. then two different powders. first was Kanahada mixed with sword oil then the last was Akako powder. Can't really say what the grit range is on the last powder, but rough guess is 40k plus? Hope this helps and thanks.
