This one goes along with the spur story.......My wife and daughter with the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years. This was a Churchill about 2 weeks before he sealed the deal on the triple.
Pretty cool but might as well be Mr ED, just looks like a horse to me.... You obviously get into all kinds of stuff.

At this point they are only up to 60 grit on my belt sander. I will start with 80 grit removing the heat scale and up from there. I hand sanded the first one up to 220.

When my last buffer quit, I replaced it with a harbor freight buffer. It's 7 or 8 years old, and still going strong. Sissal wheels and polishing compound from Jantz on a buffer will save you some time, and it's pretty cheap. Start with a rough cut rouge and work your way down. Are you doing ironwood handles again?

I have polished some before, but I kinda like the brushed look. I am certain though that one will get polished here soon and I will follow your advice. The vegetable clever will be ironwood for sure, but I am contemplating maple for the santoku blade just to change it up. And I made a sweet batch of micarta yesterday for something a little more tactical.

I never had you pegged for a red wine kind of guy. :laugh: Looks great!
Haha...I couldn't find anything to prop it up for pics and then I found my wino-wife's cork drawer, and it worked awesome! Although I did drink quite a few glasses on our Texas Hill Country winery tours last weekend...I would have preferred a beer or bourbon.

I wish I had seen that Payphone, I'm going to go look it up online.

That looks good Gary. Is it about 3/16" thick? And based on your handle holes, are you doing a paracord wrap?
