    Jaw dropping... I can't wait to see it in person. I may have to send you my other sab for a new dress.

    Looks great, Dave.

    Any reason you didn't just grind that bolster around the choil completely off? I don't mean the bolster that is part of the handle, but the part that create sharpening problems.

    I felt that it was best to leave the Sabatier look which is somewhat that full bolster style so I made corrections to allow the knife to go to the stones without problems now. The idea is to sharpen the bolster and edge as one.

    I wouldn't mind but I have no idea where to go for that.

    Next time we need a WIP. I would be curious to know how who got it to look that spectacular, unless it was just a ton of sweat.

    I think that the knifemaking has played a role in me getting better at this type of stuff. I noticed how quick I was able to do some of the finishing bits that used to take me forever to do before and the handle shaping was a cinch from all the rehandles I've got to do so yeah I really do believe that this is the reason why this one went so well.

    Maybe I'll do a WIP some day but if I know myself I'd forget to stop and record what I'm doing because I can really get into the work and time just disappears and the next thing it's done. It sure would be cool do document some of this stuff sometime though.
