    I would email Andy, I am sure it is as easy as dropping it in the mail and covering return shipping

    It's a piece of cake. Call up Andy first, just to make sure he is not overloaded. Then mail it on to Georgia. I sent in my hunter in December and had it back, lookin like new in no time! Shined up, restamped and sharpened. All you have to do is pay for shipping.

    Sounds easy enough. When I can pry myself from it I'll send it in for a cleaning. Right now it's just getting some small scratches in the wood. BTW, I was surprised how fast the blade started to get a patina.

    Just send it home. I can make it look all perty again. I do the handle and blade during the refresh. 01 stains quickly. The ease of sharpening and edge holding are good though.
    Who cares what I just said. Please go learn about SuperBen, he needs the knifemaking community.

    I just received an EDC back from Andy that has seen some hard use. It looks great!! Take advantage of the spa when you can stand to part with it. You'll be very happy you did.

    I simply use about 600 grit sand paper (wet / dry) on the blade - carefully hand rubbing the blade perpendicular to the edge. Then I increase the grit - going slowly - until I reach a weak 2000 git. If you dull the edge - then resharpen.

    I then use the 2000 grit - clean - on the handle. Use a little black honing compound and buff it to a shine - and viola - it looks new.

    I use Flitz polish. It removes staining very easily and leaves the steel looking beautiful. A good leather strop and a little technique will keep Andy's edge razor sharp. No worries....
