So... when a little bit drunk last night... maybe more than a little bit. Anyways I decided to sharpen a knife, showing my friends how easy it is...

Well I checked it just now and.. it looks like shit. There are scratches on the face/side of the blade.

How can I buff these out? polishing compound and a buffing wheel? high grit stone and elbow grease?

How would a manufacturer get that super polished finish on a knife?

Note to self: Hide knives when drinking.

EDIT: Bar keepers friend is somewhat abrasive, combined with a tooth brush and elbow grease it got 80% of the scratches out. Couldnt notice them unless you took a good look.

Try using " Flitz Polishing Paste" it works pretty well to remove minor scratches.It is not too abrasive and also polishes the blade

Yeah I after some google searches I found that small shallow surface scratches are easily removable through any fine grit abrasive, even baking soda might have worked with enough scrubbing

How high up?? Maybe just time for a good thinning session if they are just above the bevel, start at the low grit and work up. If they are on the face hit it with some high grit sandpaper or silicon carbide pastr and elbow grease them out.
