They were fully ground to about 400 grit and already fairly thin at the edge. I think I had given them a quick rub against the grain with 180 grit to make stone finishing easier. For finishing properly as they were intended, would need a go on a diamond plate to get completely flat and grind marks out, then stone finish. Ideally....
Ill get a list going for who is owed them.
I'm owed one as well. I have no handle-making skills to offer, but I do have some blocks and scales and a couple Martell coupons.
I'm also among the skill-less lot....but I could start a google doc to capture all the info and share the URL back to this group so everyone can see what's in progress/where/how/etc....if that would be more help than hinderance.
I can help if you will have me.
I'd be happy to help with the finishing and handling, only really makes sense for any non US purchasers though due to shipping.
I was pretty excited about this project, hopefully steps can be taken to get knives to their owners
I can help some, finishing metal work or handles, maybe even a saya or two.
If provided with the handle materials, I could help assemble.
Sure, four hands would make work at least 50% faster.

All: Started a spreadsheet to capture folks owed products, and those volunteering to help out. If you can think of additional stuff we need to track, let me know, happy to add it to the spreadsheet.
Here's the link:
Were all of these knives supposed to come with Sayas? If not, please let me know whether yours was supposed to come with one and I'll note that on the list.
Thats brilliant, how you do that is beyond me, but its brilliant thanks, saves me a whole load of reading though writing things down.:D
