    Here are the final shots. I fixed the grind more or less, making it flatter), ground down a bit more of the vestiges of bolster and put a 5k + strop edge on it. Thanks for the input!

    How nice! I specially like the way you dealt with the bolster. Sorry about your strop...

    That looks beautiful indeed -- especially given the "before" shots. I'm as impressed with the handle as anything -- looks as good as a "real" re-handle job. And the finger-guard attenuation looks really pretty, too. Of course the blade itself is rescued from no-tip and a recurve that made it barely functional before. It's born again.
