The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Heres are some photo collages of before and after pictures of my recent clean up of a WWII era Klein electricians knife. A coworker gifted this to me upon his retirement. He says it was either his Grandfathers or Fathers....couldn't quite remember. I just cleaned it up with sandpaper starting with 400 grit and working into 2,500 grit. Polished it a little with some Flitz and then a coat of renwax. I didn't want to go much farther with it because I wanted it to show it's history. I really enjoyed this project, I could almost feel it come to life in my hands as I was working on it. I've got a bail on the way from a friend down south.
!!! .. Nice job, Andy .. !!!
Nice pics too.
It is good to see a tired but still sturdy old workhorse rejuvenated and ready to go again!
Thanks guys. I'll get a picture up after I get the bail in.
