So I had a box of cheap knives in a storage building on my property. It obviously had a leaking roof, and had water dripping in that particular box of knives (I was unaware) for over a year. I have since bought a newer storage building that does not leak. The Kabar Dozier & older Western W81 were worth saving, love carrying the lightweight Kabar, and the Western is a great little bird & trout knife for smallmouth fishing(which I love to do with Ultralight tackle). That said, I simply disassembling the Kabar & in the blast cabinet it went. 10 minutes work maybe? The Western the same amount of time with a little more scale buffing afterwards. I just have a small Jobsmart blast cabinet, but saved these two with just 20 minutes worth the work. Ive some Duracoating for friends in the past which is why I bought the cabinet. Hope to put both to use this Spring. Kabar on far right. Western Bird & Trout in middle.
