    Check out the satin finish Mike, Wolfpack34 did in this thread, awesome.

    Now that’s a satin finish.
    Yes, this is the one I saw and I was blown away

    Here's some other things on the cheap side to make life easier:
    Cheap tools for razor restoration
    Usually found in junk shops or ladies cosmetic shops.

    I would recommend good quality wet dry paper from an auto parts supply shop. The Japanese ones are usually of very high quality. The abrasive grains are more even and better adhered to the backing. The backing material is stiffer also which makes for a better surface. Go side to side and then at a different stroke angle for each grit. That removes the high spots from the previous grit.
    And, have fun. If you are getting fried, leave it and come back to it later.

    Yeah I love it here. I'm station on white beach in Okinawa. I used to ride here and it was incredible but I wrecked and fractured my spine. So I decided I needed a new hobby so I didn't go bonkers. I leave in 6 months to go to California but my three years here has been amazing. And thanks for the tip, I actually noticed how good the sandpaper was right off the bat. My dad's a handyman and I kinda got forced into it at 8 years old haha.

    Find some one that restores old Japanese swords. Those guys put the shine on things that is AMAZING and they use stones for most of it.

    Other than that? Silicon carbide wet/dry "sand" paper works great.
