    Any tips about taking the dremel to the spine and choil? What bit/burr/whatever do you use?

    I use a green grinding stone I shaped into an hour glass shape to do the initial shaping, it is less likely to slip and wreck the face of the blade. Follow that with a scotchbrite wheel to work out scratches, follow that with a felt wheel with polishing compound, either stop here or go for mirror polish with sandpaper. That is how I have been doing mine, with nice results; you may want smaller sized bits to get up close to the handle if desired.

    I did my usual "finishing" which includes:
    -taking the dremel to the spine and choil followed by progressive sanding and then polishing.
    -light sanding of the corners of the handle followed by some tung oil.
    -removal of the forge slag and lacquer.
    -forced patina with mustard and then a hot vinegar bath for a couple hours.
    -stained the saya and carved a new pin out of "fatwood". I love fatwood pins due to there resinous nature....they really grip the hole when pushed in.
    -put a new edge on it of course .

    After the pics were taken, I took a green scotchbrite pad to the steel, removed the patina (and extra slag that remained) and let the blade sit up-rite in an onion for about twenty min. to check re-activity. I fully expected the onion to have turned black where it sat up next to the blade, but it was totally unstained! Well, that's about it...thanks for looking.





    Nice how did you remove the slag & varnish?

    Sanding + vinegar bath for 5-6 hours + scrubbie.
