    Dats purty!

    Lovely work Brad! I really like the modern carbon fibre and layered G10 against the old wedge blade.

    Nicely done! What grit belt do you start at for the regrind and do you progress through belt grits or switch to greaseless at some point?

    belt progression was 40 grit - 80 grit - 220 grit - 400 grit - 600 grit - 1200 grit - emery - white rouge - hand polish. no greaseless used lines are nice and crisp, the whole thing has that hard-line new feeling. quite the opposite of greaseless results.
