Very nice!

I have the same kind of blade lying around without scales, if I can fix it up at least half as good as this one I'll be a happy man.

Fantastic work.

Salmo, could you please tell me, what you use for pitting removal after the very first, crude rust fighting? Sometimes I have the blades like

, and the only thing I'd like to do would be to remove a little more of black spots. I don't aim for mirror finished, luster-like surface, just getting rid of the black thing inside the pits. Any hints, please?

regards,
Matt

Thank you, Salmo.

I did use 120 paste, but it gave me rather polishing, than stain removal. Maybe the reason was that I was using cotton wheels rather than hard felt. :)

cheers,
Matt
