    Be carefull you don't get to daylight, Chev!
    I am on some thicker stuff. Henkels 45 from the pile. Finally saw it! Put away wet and has a good ring on the front tip. Will sand a bit! Some old carved bone scales long enough to hold this blade will be neat. I will go with silver domes, big and little with lead wedge and pinned with bronze rod. I will enjoy this one for years! (prolly gonna take years to finish! )

    I'm hand sanding an I.Barber 7/8 stub-tail blade, that's been sitting (with other "naked" blades) in a box for the past five years. It's the first one I've ever done by hand (always used my corded Dremel), and what a PITA!




    I began conservatively -- with a high grit (1800), which did nothing -- and then worked my way down to 400 grit, before deciding to go rock-bottom, with 150 grit wet/dry paper (WD40, not H2O). There's still some discoloration and minor pitting present, but even though it's massively thick, I didn't want to "excavate", so I followed protocol and alternated N-S/E-W as I moved up in grit size. I've got about six hours invested -- 150, 220, 360, 500, 600, 800, and 1000 grit -- and will continue tomorrow with 1200, 1500, 1800, 2000, 2500, and 3000-grit paper; then on to Micro-Mesh. I'm glad this is a hobby, not a livelihood. I have no idea what I'll do for scales; I've been thinking about faux tortoise-shell, but I've never made scales before, either.

    That's a lovely stubby you got there. I would love to see it when you are finished. I have a John Barber and it brings a smile to my face every time I use it!!!
