A post I didn't want to make, but i'll be bowing out. I rushed to glue up and let the blade sit while I was at work all week. I came home eager and did get a tight perfect glue. I started sculpting and laying out my lines for contouring but decided to re-wrap the blade. When removing the tape there was epoxy that cured on both sides, no way for me to get it off without wrecking the satin finish, and I don't want to continue to make compromises. Apologies guys.
