    A Start

    Prompted to sharpen something today.

    It will never be new again. I miss the mirror finish but like a good wife she performs better than she looks.

    The finish you put on it is exactly the kind of finish I like on a knife: plain and easy to deal with.

    Nice. You mind saying what grits you sanded with? I think I prefer the satin finish.

    JNS offers powder that, combined with water and cork, allows you to refinish rust blade in just 2 minutes.
    While 80 grit sounds like something very coarse, in practice it leaves a pretty good finish that you probably wouldn't want to polish any higher.

    Wow, were all of those orange spots rust? Were they left wet or would that just develop no matter how hard you try to wash and dry quickly
