I don't mean this disrespectfully to Aaron, but since you are getting a nihonto Mark, I would only look to professional sword polishers in order to keep the sword shaped and sharpened properly. However there is no need to have your sword polished since you're most likely not going to use it. The only reason why you need to repolish the sword is if it develops oxidation. Even if the definition of the hamon, hada, nioi, nie fade, most professional polishers would be reluctant to polish on such a new sword as it takes away material and would make it last for a shorter period of time, though that's up to the polisher.

Just my 2 cents.
