I am researching the stone polishing techniques used to polish katana. I have come across the term Migakibô, which is a polishing rod used during the Shitamigaki (下磨き) stage of polishing, but I can not find the appropriate symbols, Kanji, Hiragani or Katakana, for Migakibô. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
Do you mean following?
Alphabet for Japanese: migakibou ← easily understand for Japanese
"磨き" means "polishing". "棒" means "rod".
I found the word (磨き棒) at here.
