Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I got my first katana and although I like it very much, I'd like the hamon to be more pronounced. I can't really see it unless light hits the blade at a certain angle and I was wondering what I can do (that's relatively simple) to make it stand out a little more. I've read that Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish with a blue shop towel works as does vinegar. Does anyone have experience doing this? Also, there was a slight bit of corrosion I rubbed off with some Flitz and a micro-fiber cloth and now the hamon is gone from that section, is this normal? I was under the impression the hamon would stand out more the more it was polished.
