    Are you sanding the coating off? That's a lot of work! Use a stripper, like jasco. 15 minutes, done.

    It's a great workout lol


    Seriously though I ended up moving to just sanding the coating off over stripping them. I always sanded after stripping anyway cause I liked a smooth surface before forcing a patina.

    Looking great! Not sure if it's the angle, but looks like you got that dinged up tip straightened out.

    Looking good, I'm on the fence for a Junglas II. Don't quite have a need for a big knife yet though.
