    You better hurry up. I already have three on hand and this looks pretty good to me too.

    Nice work Dave.

    Thanks for all the kind words folks.


    To answer some of the questions/statements...

    The wood isn't dyed (well not that I'm aware of anyway) and it was quite a lot lighter before the final stages of sanding.

    I got real lucky with the preservation of the maker's mark. This is something that I was afraid would disappear (as they often do) but the luck came from a deep stamping that somewhat deformed the blade face making an impression. I was able to grind pretty deep and not touch the maker's mark until the final steps - SWEET!

    I'd love to do another (or 10) of these because it was fun. Please feel free to go run up the bids on ebay. LOL

    That is the best resto job I've ever seen.

    How's about I send you an old Sheffield for rehabilitation?
