Natural Buffalo horn takes a super polish - you need to really work at it, using everfiner grades of sandpaper, then wet or dry paper - I usually go right down to 800 grit for final sanding. Then finish with a slightly abrasive metal polish like Peek.
IMPORTANT: It's a natural material. Sometimes the plate may be slightly curved. It changes shape well when heated. Therefore, if you want to align the workpiece - just heat it!
Buffalo Horn is a natural material, and variations in colour and markings are part of their natural character.
