    Yeah, before I go grinding anything off I will but I'm pretty darn sure. I can catch my fingernail on it and I sanded a bunch. Still hoping that's true but, as I said pretty good and sure.
    Maybe something Spanish...ish. like this. Huh?

    I wouldn't even have to go all the way to the toe. I could leave a little 90° to the bevel left on the point.

    I believe that we have only seen one side of the blade--what does the other side look like?

    I've seen many razors with that 'stain' and I'd hate to see a perfectly good blade get cut down.

    Double check, then triple check and then check again before cutting.

    Here is a little project I did today.
    Kamisori edge guard.

    Started shaping the pieces first. Glued it together, then sanded some more to fit. A couple of thin coats of Tru-oil and a little wax and here it is...

    Purpleheart for the sides and Olive in the middle. Just used a few scraps I had from scale making in the past. I had to rob my Granddaughters Hair Tie Bowl to secure it in place. I only made one as I didn't know how well it would turn out. Now to make another one.

    Any opinions or options you might have to make it better would be helpful. The edge fits inside and doesn't touch anything. That was the main plan.
    It's just Sharpening, right?

    Extremely nice!
    Find the right size O-ring for that, Jerry!
    Mebbe a tiny groove in the bottom-middle to locate it there.

    Will be sexyer, I promise!

    That's really nice. Funny because I was thinking of something like that.for that Korn "The Real" I have earlier today.

    Back to the Clauberg: did some sanding on the end and it is definitely a crack. You can.follw it around the tip at an angle up the the line on the other side.

    It is the black stuff. Might be corroded deep.

    I would leave it, if it were mine, otherwise a French point would get it right out of there.

    Thanks for the idea Tom. I was going to try and drill a hole and use a string of some kind, but i just didnt like the idea. The O-ring and notch sound like a good plan. Cant wait to see the looks on the auto parts guy when I walk in with it.

    At least you double checked the crack. Looks like time to start cutting. The Spanish point is my favorite of the two. Leaving a bit of square point for strength like you were saying. Looking at Toms pic you can see how the french point still has a good bit of up before slanting back.
    Nice pic Tom.

    Agreed on the pic Tom. I was concerned that I would be losing too much spine the way I had that drawn for French and to do it more like Tom's pic I would lose more length than I want. I'm thinking Spanish solves the problem best. I'm still trying to decide if I want to just leave it. It is close to the top of the hollow and probably won't cause problems with stability although I guess a trip to the stones will tell the true story.
