hi everyone, im sure some of you have already seen this in other places, wanted to try posting some recent restores here. this is a poor little wade & butcher which someone had attempted to regrind in the past. aside from the poor grind it also had considerable corrosion on the tang and tail. it ended up being worse than the pics show. heres some before pics.....

I went a less than traditional route and gave it custom scales in Yellow & black G10 and filed the corroded tail into shape, giving it a "stinger" and I (cheesily)call it the wasp.

Love the salvage of the tang. Turned a bad situation into a stunner.
