    OMG this polishing is more like a restoration! My Grandfathers Sgian-dubh! This isn't a simple 5 minutes job like polishing new vape gear... I have spent an hour or two on it already and far from finished! Here is the before pictures!

    I have sanded it... worked on it with silicone discs using the Dremel... buffed with different grit compounds on the buffing wheel... and done some hand polishing... still not happy with the blade and am awaiting my next parcel from the US because I have some more Dremel goodies coming in.

    I watch a lot of restoration video's on YouTube and they were the inspiration for this project... I don't have all the right tools but I'm making do with what I have. I have never been a handyman and I guess lockdown has inspired me to find things to do.

    Some more love for the Dagger! I will need to get some water paper because I'm not satisfied with the blade yet!
