    Re: Knife restoration

    Some hand sanding starting with 360 grit paper on a foam block
    800
    1200
    1500

    Should get the blade smart. I use Mirca paper as it seems to work well, quick and effective. Sit infront of TV doing it to retain sanity.

    Love what you have done with the handles. They were zaffordables, ok blades but excellent locks. I had one at university eventually it was knicked.

    Re: Knife restoration

    It seems that kind of pocket knife was quite popular, since I also have a couple of them in 2 different sizes.
    Also, in a very bad shape.
    One says STAINLESS JAPAN and the other STAINLESS PAKISTAN.

    It seems that they could come alive again.

    Now, the only thing I need is some spare time to help them.

    Excellent post Merly.

    Re: Knife restoration

    the style is copied from the buck 110, which is i think the most copied knife in the world, although most of the copys are different sizes
