Re: [BKARTS] Chromplanz



All you need is chrome polish.  You can find a variety of these polishes
in auto parts stores, or the auto cleaning sections of many supermarkets.

If your paring knife is a little rough, purchase some 300-400 grit
aluminum oxide wet/dry auto sandpaper, or some rubbing compound.

Rubbing compound is a coarse paste compared with chrome polish and
will do a good job of honing an edge before polishing.
