Hello there, I just received my set of Shapton's and they're awesome!

However, I finally marred my Konosuke HD, the side of the blade rubbed against the stone and now I have holograms on it and metal polish or wet sand does not work.

I have those blems on most of my knifes due to improper angle or just working too fast on the stone, but now I am really wondering if there is a way for someone like me to fix that at home.

Thanks!

We sell some sanding pads that work but it takes elbow grease and some work. You need to work through the progression of them and polish the knife in the same direction.

You will need to refinish the entire knife, by taking it down to a grit that is equal to or lower than the grit that scratched the blade, and then work it up. It will never look the same again unless you buff it on a machine, because that is how they are buffed when being manufactured.

This is not a bad thing, its just life. A scuff on a knife is not like a ding on a car--it's more like dirt on a hammer.
