    none, i sand up to 1000 grit, and use buffing wheels. gives a nice shine.

    I'm pretty similar to John only I stop at 600 grit on the sanding. Buff with fast cut, then medium cut, green scratch remover and then pink scratchless. Finally I'll use a coat of car wax buffed off with a clean buff. I've been edc-ing an elk handled knife last couple of years. This works.
