Found my knife I’ve entered in the One Knife Challenge at BCUSA dull as dish water(bopping around fir several years without a sheath)
Got out the stones, went through all 4 up to translucent Arkansas
Usually I finish with a trip to the power strop(buffing wheel) but didn’t bother here, it was alrwady verry fine and smooth, no bur to speak of. Don’t need laser fine edge right now, maybe later.. will see how it carves.
I entered this intending to use a new knife I had on order. But then they were delayed, wasn’t sure if it would come in time… So I chose the Damascus scandi intending to use my one free swap later.
Now I have the other newcone(details to be posted soon), and couls swap, But I think I’m staying with the scandi… I made this knife over 15 years ago, and its had little to no use.. Might as well get to use it, especially since bushcrafty stuff us what I made it for!
Need to make a sheath of some sort too. It use to be in a hollowed out elk antler beam and leather deal I made, but the antler warped one winter… Not sure what I’ll do now.
