    Preeeeetty sure that's not a Victorian-era blade. Looks early 1830's tops to me.

    And also a lovely restore! But Pups is good at that.

    I had to take some off the toe and the hook out of the heel and what's in the pics is a result of all that blended back to the middle. I got the geometry right now. I am going through the gymnastics of getting it honed up. It's was coming out even and the middle was still not meeting. I finally got a test shave out of it but I am not feeling the soul yet. Doing it during smoke breaks when I am not drooling over my new toy.

    Zak , you should remember this blade. It's the 1 I was going to leave the red patina on and just hone it up :<0)

    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    Oh yeah! That one!

    I really like how you left it as-is for your restore!
