Welcome to the restoration page. My name is Chris Osborne and I've been polishing modern Japanese style blades for close to 20 years now. I've polished blades by nearly all of the Japanese style sword makers working in the US today. Currently I'm only taking new commissions through Howard Clark or Kanemasa. If you're having a blade made by Howard and would like to have it polished feel free to contact me for a place in my queue. Polishing cost is $65 per inch of nagasa. Below are pictures of past polishing projects and the studio.
