The armorhide is coming off in a few places and a previous owner scratched the chrome up nice trying to sharpen the blade. Perfect!! It's just like I like em, a little beat up and ready for some MUDification. Now all I gotta do is find the time.
Mud, what did you use for the Armorhide repair, or is it a trade secret?
Well sir, that is not a repair. Completely stripped and refinished. I've done a Shorty and Pixie that were chrome (flaking badly on both) and a T&B. The T&B was in worse shape. They don't see daily use, but all have been used.
I'm a painter by trade. All trades have secrets.
I will say that the coating I used is for industrial applications and should hold up to daily use.
