    Interesting that the right side here is the fat one. Most western knives I've seen had a more or less flat right side, and a slightly convex left one. A strictly symmetric blade would wedge of course, beside the food release issue.

    I love this wip. Makes me anxious to see how the sab that I've got out to Dave for a refurb turns out.

    Wow, that thing gets really thin towards the tip, huh? I'm assuming that you can't do as aggressive of a clean-up job there. Is that right?

    @Benuser: Since the right side is so thick, I'm planning on leaving it with some asymmetry, putting a decent machine finish and cut some things to evaluate. I may just end up with something fairly thin but I am trying to keep the old geometry, if I can.
    @K-Fed: I'm sure Dave will come up with something really nice. This one has a lot of corrosion and pitting. It'll be a judgement call on how far to go before calling it good. I'm thinking I won't try to make it look new but just functional.
    @heirkb: Yes. It is thinner than most lasers until you get to the very tip. And yes, I don't think I can get all the pitting out unless I want a piece of foil left over to cut with.

    Those aren't pits, they are Grantons!

    Hmm. I think you're right. In that case, I should probably take out a drill and enlarge them a little.

    That is a CRUSTY looking bolster there!

    Also looking forward to seeing this.

    Yup. I'm thinking I'll ScotchBrite it to death and see how it turns out.
