    If the edge cleans up all but the toe, Id cut it down. But with the way it looks Im afraid you might not get a pit free edge. A regrind would give you less chips to have to deal with but the cracks are to the point I wouldn't put a lot of time in honing the toe and crossing my fingers.

    Thanks for taking a look Rezdog and Gasman.

    I'm not going to put a lot of effort into the toe since I'll change the tip if the edge is clean. I'm not ready to give up on the pits yet, I'm in to it less than 2 hours, so I think I'll keep going here and there as I feel like it and see where it leads.

    I'm not sure when to quit and consider a regrind though. Right now it's about 13/16 with a near wedge grind. At some point I'm thinking the geometry would be messed up if it looses to much width. Or have I got this wrong in my head? Right now the hone angle with 3 layers of tape is at 19.4 degrees and 18.9 with two layers (a little more or less depending on my measurement accuracy). Even with three layers the bevel looks pretty wide, but this is only my second near wedge and the first one went really easy and with a fairly thin bevel at two layers of tape. I'm trying to feel my way through this more challenging blade.

    I'd like to keep this as close to a wedge as possible. So maybe if it gets to 6/8 time to change the grind?

    Well, I got Karl Johnson to regrind my Stenton and it lost very little width, although it was in much better condition. I would not spend the money on a regrind for that blade but look through his posts and you will see there is not any more width lost than you would get from a full hone progression.

    Yep. You may end up with closer to 1/4 hollow, but width is not much of a change when regrinding. Unless its extremely bad. Im with Shaun. Save it for practicing on and find another for your efforts.

    I'll be moving on to my swirly Geneva, I just had the stones out and some time. I'll use this blade to check out a couple of stones and work on some honing strokes. If the pits kill it, I'll use it for grinding practice and eventually cut the tang off for scale mock up. Thanks for the input.

    Oh jelly, that’s a good idea. I have a couple of dead blade that I could us for that. Thanks.

    Thanks, but if your referring to cutting the tang off for mock up I can't take credit for that. My CRS has been acting up, so I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I got that from a post by gssixgun. I think he said there's like 3? maybe 4? common tang sizes/tapers so you can have just a few tangs for mock up and not worry about a bloodletting event.

    If you're referring to the rest, well... that I will take credit for
