    Arrow Full Custom rebuild of a Microtome

    David/nubskills and I were talking about this one night in chat which led me to doing one of these awhile back here in this thread...

    After that one, he sent me this Microtome, and a set of designs that he had drawn up... of course to almost perfect scale, pretty impressive drawing actually...
    This started out the same way as a pretty boring old unknown Microtome..

    But with a few cuts, and some serious Dremel grinding and modding, the basic Kamisori shape began to come out..

    I re-fashioned the entire tang, by cutting off the tail and grinding in a sword/knife style tang, and went with a one piece design for the handle, for which I used Black Lightning acrylic...
    I drilled out the tang hole, and drilled through a hole to use a locking pin as per David's design even though it wasn't really needed.. I used Acraglass bedding to seal in the tang then the Nickel Silver cross pin... I tell you this was possibly the most hours I have put in on any restore/rebuild, and yes David I saw the dull spots that showed up in these Macro pics and re-polished it already

    So here are the finished pics of a new Micro-sori

    Love the way the point was reshaped and the scales. Beautiful job !
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    That's a helluva good look for "a pretty boring old unknown Microtome."
    Not so boring now G

    Very nice!! Do you have any other blades in mind for this? Would a certain grind work best?
