Early 110 blade marks: evidence of file origin or wild sharpening marks?

    In my opinion that is evidence of a horrible sharpening job. By the early 60s buck was stamping blanks out of steel, and wasn't using file blades anymore.

    It looks like very deep gouges from a bench grinder that was used in a dim witted attempt to sharpen it. Then it was buffed to try to hide them. It didn't work.

    Get ahold of Leroy at Triple R Knives. He MAY be able to remove some or all of the marks, no guarantee though.

    looks like a file was used to sharpen the blade.
