I realize alot of this will be posted in other threads. but I would like to avoid days of searching, it might be good to compile the info in one spot.
I have a Tojiro Petty in White #2. I'm looking at taking the back of the face off to make it a "single bevel" as well as a new handle.
I'm not sure how to get a good polish on the blade as well as handle removal/construction.
I'll primarily be using hand tools to do the work. I figure a $30 knife is a good one to play with.
Maybe someone has some ideas or tricks that haven't been shared.
Or even better, materials that they might not use
I know a few members here such as salty can achieve some very nice results re-polishing a blade.
