    Yes! If you have access to a SMOOTH knife steel, then use that to realign the edge. If a smooth steel is not available, try using a round screwdriver shaft (use a larger diameter shaft). Removing steel should be the last option tried.

    I am going with bronze on this one. Just love the way it looks after a little wear.

    I hope they go up for sale on the sight after the initial release is completed since I missed out on this one.

    Got my two waitingIn a box for me when I got home from work last night.

    Just for curiosity, I compared the weight of the Trash 2 to the AR9.5: (both Bronze coated; weighted on my reliable OXO digital kitchen scale)

    Trash2 = 458g or 16-1/8oz
    AR9.5 = 532g or 18-3/4oz

    and a bonus comparison:

    Comp JH10 w/ R&B G-10 = 515g or 18-1/8oz

    it’ll be real cool to see how the Trash2 and AR9.5 compare in use!

    Honestly, I was very surprised that the difference was only 2.5oz for the difference in spine thickness...

    There is significant difference in spine thickness, but then I think the FHFG vs. saber grind evened things out a little... and then I don’t know if there is a difference in material weight.... INFI vs. SR-101. The Regulator grip is also more substantial, but I can’t imagine the weight difference being too big just from that.
