Case XX Green Bone: Blade Nick Removal

Post by XX Case XX » Fri Aug 02, 2019 9:34 pm

I was able to acquire this XX era Case Green Bone from Steve last month. The main blade had a small nick in it. The blade already had moderate blade loss, but I was hoping my buddy Rick (Railsplitter) could remove that nick without taking off too much more metal.

As you can see, he did a fantastic job. The nick used to be right about where that purple arrow is (Photo #3), but now it's gone. He also went to work on the other 2 blades and now all 3 have a clean, razor sharp edge.

Here are some before/after photos. Click on the photos and you can get a good look.

Thanks Rick!! Most appreciated my friend. ::handshake::

Very nice knife Mike..... And now even nicer since Rick has put his touch on it!

Great job Rick!
