    Picture 5 shows some scary pitting-looks like it has almost eaten through the blade.

    I remember Eamon taking on a project like this once and having to scrap it after a bunch of work. I definitely would not attempt it myself.

    I have one of these Primbles, in much better condition. They are very similar to Forgecraft, albeit a touch thicker behind the edge. The handle, although only a partial tang, has a really cool shape. The only bad thing about them is once the handle is replaced it's Primble identity is lost, as the etching on the blade is super light, and won't last through even a light polish, let alone thinning....

    Cool history, though.

    So many better conditioned project knives available for the effort involved.

    What about all the old sab blanks that are out there, I have been wanting one my self. 100 year old carbon freshly ground with proper modern heat treat, sounds nice to me.
