Son gave me the idea to poke around ebay, find some vintage knives and rework them into usable equipment. Picked two up. A carbon Dexter that is extremely oxidized, rusted and beat to hell. The other is a carbon 12" carving/scimitar. The Dexter I'm just planning on cleaning and working a bit at the handle. The carver I plan to rehandle and do a little work on the blade. I've been looking through some burls and trying to figure out whether I want to keep the pins or sand them down and epoxy in.
