Thanks guys but honestly if I can do it so can anyone - all it takes is some practice and getting the stones broken in. Once you start really working those stones and strops you can get this finish every time!

Looks like my stones are breaking in, I'm getting a more polished look.

One of our moldmakers who put mirror polishes on microscopic sections of a core or cavity, always said that the more time you spend on the grit before this one, the less you have to use this one, and the more you use this one, the less you will have to use the next. It was the kind of advice saying, if you want good results, would you rather spend time doing it efficiently, or spend 4x the time doing it by going up a grit too soon?
