I hit the shop right after church, removed the c-clamps from the glued up scales and sanded, sanded, sanded. I sanded so much I can't use the thumb touch function to open my IPhone. First up is the Damascus knife (I decided to give it to my daughter). She wanted something to slice sushi, so I think this might do it. Second up are the other three blades. The redwood burl and the stabilized curly redwood have one coat of tung oil. The black palm is just hand polished. They all took a wicked edge. Thanks for looking .
