    Someone is a knucklehead ..If you are going to store your knife in it's sheath. Don't leave it on the back deck during the rainy/humid Ga. summer.

    Let me BD the handle so it'll match that awesome blade. When did you guys start doing San Mia fiddlebacks?

    Well, that's one way to add a "protective" coating!

    Get some flat black spray paint from WalMart and re-name it as a tactical stealth blade.

    There may be other solutions, just sayin'

    When I was a kid, my dad taught me to stick my rusty pocket knife in the ground to clean rust off the blade. Yeahhhh...it works? :eek:

    If my pops knew how much money I had tied up in knives now he’d prolly puke! Lol

    ...but will it cut? Everything else is just vanity - Er o_O of course I mean knife vanity - not suggesting anything about you Vance - I don't see you as a preener :)

    You can save the knife though, I have no doubt. :thumbsup:

    I've developed a special process to "let out the beauty deep within", so send it to me and I'll see what I can do. I promise that it will come back lighter and shinier than when it arrives.

    So that was step one. Rough sanded the flats and used an eraser on some of it. Then I ground it to 120 grit. Time to finish it up and clean the spines. Good as new.

    I 'spect it helps to have a well-established, highly-regarded, top-level knife-creating shop at your disposal.

    It's good to know that even the masters of the craft have vestiges of human fallibility left in them.

    Reassuring, it is. :)
