First things first! Disassembling.

As usual I disassembled the knife. It was straight forward process but it surprised me with so much rust. It is good that I m gonna restore it.

So I started sanding two small metal parts with sandpaper 120, then 240 and finally with 800 grit. It would be ideal to have 400 grit between, but I was short for that one. I like how it came out after 800 grit, but I had to sand it much longer to have nice finish. It would be much easier if I had a 400 grit.

After finishing fine metal sanding I removed old paint from knife’s handle also by sanding. It was just fine with 120 grit and after that with 240 grit. I was happy at this point. Next step was to start sanding the blade itself. I decided to use 240 grit wet sandpaper. The reason for this was to remove least possible material from blade and keep the branding clear and easy readable. After many hours of sanding I managed to get nice smooth finish on the blade.

So far so good. Now I could focus again on the wooden handle. I wanted to paint it in red colour, to keep it close as possible to the original. It came out alright. I used a brash to paint it.

I waited for a while to dry, but that handle soaked the paint like a sponge. To give a better finish to the handle I used my homemade beeswax finish. I rubbed it directly on the handle.

Assembling is my favorite part.

Finally I could start assembling. Same as taking this knife a part it was easy to put it back together. With help of the hammer I pinned this knife securely and I could take a look at first time how it looks after the restoration. Gorgeous!

But before I show you guys I had to sharpened the knife. For that I used a small wet stone. I did first one side and then the other.

I did short paper cutting test and this knife is ready. In the picture below I tried to catch a blade mirror look. Of course, what else than FFD logo!

  1. Хорошая работа!
    На мой взгляд стоило убрать выработку клинка и восстановить плоские сканди спуски вместо линзы.
    Ширина клика это позволяет, а при снятой рукояти и вовсе несложно.

  3. My man! This has to be one of your best restorations til now, if not the best.
