    I stripped two more yesterday. One was my first stripped SR101 (BGTG). They turned out pretty good, Although the BGTG had a good bit of chatter on it. Still better than paint.

    First was the BGTG.

    I cant speak for others,but I used a paint stripper from home depot,scotch brite pads,and sandpaper. I didn't use any power tools,but really didnt need to.
    Once the coating is off the blade you can see what the blade looks like and determine if you want to leave it or clean it up.
    I'm sure other more experienced members can help you more than I did. 20190212_113941.jpg

    I'm a big fan of using paint stripper to get the coating off and the bead blasting to get the decarb layer off.

    Citristrip and wet/dry sandpaper mostly, though a dremel with wire wheel and/or scotch-brite bits can speed things up and help with hard to reach areas.

    Another stripper for the party :D :

    @clampdaddy Ever try the walnut or pecan shells in the blaster? I was always wondering if that would polish more and not give the double cut look.

    I have not. I doubt it would remove the decarb layer. On the ones I want more of a shine, after bead blasting I will rub it down with some fine steel wool and a little metal polish.

    You don't have to remove them. The paint stripper doesn't bother them.
