I have been very inspired by the stuff you folks are up to. I decided I have to give it a try. I got myself this cool old Forgecraft Chef knife. It looked worse than it really was. I used an old Indian trick I "learnt" from a grumpy old white man on it. I wet it up with some Breakfree CLP and let it sit for a day or two then I took some scotchbrite to it and it cleaned up well. Next I'll take the handle off and make the tang so it can take a WA handle. Then I guess I'll be taking my first stab handle making.
Any tips or advice is MORE than welcome.
