    Thanks for the encouragement fellas. Jon - Between my vise and a block of soft end grain pine and a mallet this blade is a straight as it's going to get.

    Yeah - diamond is my new best friend followed closely by my Gesshin 400

    Keep us posted on your progress. This is quite an overhaul.

    Well this is as good as it gets for this poor thing. Nice and comfortable now and very sharp. The handle is ebony and ironwood.

    Good job Mike At least when you use it you have the satisfaction that you brought it back fr. the dead.There are alot of rusty old single bevels laying around in Hawaii,because of 3&4 generations of Japanese here.I picked up a couple dirt cheap,there is still some pretty good steel under all that rust

    Thanks - I used it tonight and the Nakiri that he sent to make up the bent blade. Both turned out to be excellent knives.
