That is one big chunck of steel. I was always curious how to sharpen one of those monsters, but looks like you did pretty well on it.

Sharpening is a work in progress, it came with a very rudimentary edge on it and I'm trying to clean it up with stones. Its so freakin big though that its gonna take a while, lots of metal to grind on and its heavy. I can only work on it for about 15-20min before my arm is totally numb.

BTW, thanks for making the photo work Jim!
