    I really like the look of the maple on that, reminds me of the blue Burlsource maple.

    Just curious, when thinning a blade like this does it allow the opportunity to correct some of the asymmetry? I know you can't put metal back, but I thought I remember reading in an earlier refurb that the cladding on one side was thicker than the other ootb.

    Is it possible to correct asymmetry? Nope, not even remotely possible without making it look like a turd. The best I can do is to correct for an even grind/thickness of the blade and hope for the cladding to look OK in the end.
