    Cool Vintage Restore - Dubl Duck Special #1

    Took this one back to as close to the day it left the factory as I could manage...

    Full tear down, polished the steel, clean sand and polish the scales and wedge, even re-blue the spine and tang... Had to re-fit the wedge too, I don't think I had ever seen a DD wedge so badly sized I used NiAg pins and the tiny SS wshers to get the same look as the old ones..

    This little Duck is flying north to Alaska tomorrow, that just seems wrong somehow, as I am typing it in November ..

    Well, you managed that just fine. I probably should not tell you that I go to a knife show in Helsinki in January then...

    I'm glad I already have a Duck. That one is really nice to look at.
