    Oh, and a big thanks to Dave for all of his tips. Surely would have screwed it up without him.

    And I can see why people talk about the edge retention on the A-types. It was not easy to grind and sand the choil and spine!

    How high of a grit did you take the choil and spine up to?

    I rounded the spine on a knife using the method that Maksim uses on one of his videos. I think it's the Yoshikane polishing video. You just use a stone to round the spine. I couldn't think of a good way to hold the knife if I wanted to use sandpaper.
    What do you do for the choil, though? That'd be tough to do on a stone I imagine.

    Same as the spine, die grinder + abrasive bit. Then a round file, and a bunch of different sand paper wrapped around a sharpie.

    I put the blade between two 1/4" thick poplar boards and put it in a vice for sanding the spine and choil.

    I'm not sure where I was on this, but great job on the rehandle (great work from Stefan too! I really like the handle!).
    I think it was a great idea to hide the machi, as it now looks a lot more professional...just like an a-type SHOULD look!
