    Cool Svord again..... There's something really wrong with me

    Well got this drop point from @257weatherby and was thinking about making a new handle from a NZ native wood.
    But on inspection the handle wasn't as rough as it looked in the pictures (bought sight unseen)
    Here it is as I bought it.

    Went over the blade with a few different grades of wet and dry down to 1000grit
    And took the lacquer off the handle and it's come up pretty nice.
    I think for now some true oil and a decent sharpen will do.
    I really thought the handle was in a lot worse shape.

    Just letting it dry out in the sun completely then I'll give it a few coats of true oil.
    Should look like new

    it looks awesome..... bet it will be great to use aswell. one of those oval sdiamond steels would probably work great to keep it super sharp.

    Keep pictures coming. Nice, stout companion to your slim bladed, slim handled Mercator.

    Please do go higher than 1000 grit, you will get a mirror shine - not just for looks, but very good protection against corrosion and stains.

    It's gonna need stone work to restore the edge, a steel just won't do that. All in good time

    Yup intend to but only had 1000 grit in the shed, the local supplier out here only goes to 1200 so will get some 2000 grit when I'm in town tomorrow.

    I'd just use a small square of 1200, and keep using it even if it loses its grit - it's effective grit is then much higher. Same goes for the 1000 come to talk of it. Say hi to black fingertips.

    There are some knife sharpening threads here, some advocate just using fine grit wet and dry for the edge.

    It's gonna need a few coats of true oil, once I'm happy with that I'll hit you up for some beeswax @gonetropo

    This is after 2 coats of true oil, I did one more and will leave that to dry overnight then I'll give it a quick buff.
