Great idea! The Remora is a tiny knife and giving the handle some width can actually create a "useful" piggy-back knife for a 4, 7, 9, or 21 (20 and 29 are in there, too......just a little more difficult to source, these days).
A 30% larger Remora would be cool with that hole moved to behind...
That 7 is gorgeous. I really need to find a stamped 7........the one I have has the small pommel and it's kind of a "Safe Queen".
The 7 and the Perseverance are my favourite Beckers as far as size goes (and my 21s, of course:D). To have one in-between the Mk2 and BK-7 would be ideal.
Put it in a plastic (Freezer-type thickness) bag to keep the Stripper moist for a longer time.
The Stripper I use is meant to strip 4 layers of paint/varnish off of furniture at once.....takes 6 minutes to remove 95%+ of a BK9's Blackness
Yeah.....what Xr6x said: Oil is not your friend.
I wipe my gonna-be strippers down with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol first. Also, if it looks like a glossier/harder coating than usual, I'll run a little 400 grit 3M or Norton Wet/Dry paper over the whole surface to make the "bite" easier/faster.
