I'm in the process of making some knives for X-mas gifts and have come to the step were I need to polish the brass guard after I have shaped it. I have it to where you can see some very fine sanding scratches on it but I'm not sure what to use for the final touch.......any suggestions?

FINAL FINISH

use 600 grit sand paper to get the sand scratches out. then buff with a sewn Muslin buffing wheel on a bench grinder motor. Now you can see super fine scratches because it is polished and use 800 grit sand paper to remove them and rebuff. be sure to use white rouge when buffing. wipe off the black when done and you'll be amazed at your finished product.
