    Vintage Sabatier Refurb

    Here is K-fed's vintage carbon Bresduck Sabatier that's been completely refurbed. I started by re-setting the profile where the heel/tang section had been neglected during sharpening, then I removed rust from the blade through grinding and thinned it a bit at the same time, then a new buckeye burl handle was installed (not an easy one at all - the tang and bolster were so whacked!!!), then finished up with an overall polish/clean & sharpen.

    This was a fun diversion from the norm - thanks K!

    Is the buckeye burl dyed?


    That's very fine work indeed.

    Beautiful workmanship. It's cool how you were able to grind on the blade, but able to save the logo. This knife when new never looked this good.
