Natural stone and mirror finish.

Mon Nov 12, 2012 3:15 pm

Hi mark
I love the recent stones i purchased from you. I was curious about the koppa. How come i don't get a mirror edge? It cuts great, i I'm just not sure why it doesn't get that shine.
Any tips?
Alex

Hi Alex,

I'm glad you like them. Since natural stones have a variety of materials and different grits in them they almost always produce a hazy finish instead of a mirror finish. It should look cloudy and some people like it.

The reason synthetics can produce mirror finishes is that they use all the same grit in the finer stones which produce a uniform scratch pattern and produces the mirror effect.
