    Here is the next one. Scales are rough shaped right now but the blade had a frown, chip in the edge by the heal, broken tip, hone wear and a little rust here and there. Its the last one in my to do drawer. After the repairs its a little shorter and thinner but it should shave.

    Thanks, Shaun. I went and had some dinner then came back to the last set. It went together really nicely.

    The pattern in those scales is lovely. Nice work.

    Not sure how far I'll go with this one in terms of sanding/polishing since there is some staining that will be hard to remove without extensive sanding. However I did polish with 3M then darkened the etch back.

    I'd be happier with the nice etching than the polish, I think.
    If you're wondering I'm probably being sarcastic.
