I know, I know. Anyone ever try to polish out an Old Hickory?

No. But an Old Hickory is just 1095. It should polish out pretty well with successive sanding pads and a lot of patience.

I can see sanding (or replacing) the handle and crowning the spine, but why would you want to polish the blade? It's undeniably jolie laid.

RAY <> Boar's humor was sort of the point of my question. That patina although "ugly" is oh so gorgeous... assuming you were talking about the blade.

As for polish jobs, look at these Forgecrafts:

The blade. Then....
Hmpff! I see my big idea isn't exactly original. Maybe I'll get one of the custom guys to do it. Kinda have a contest with those forgecrafts.

Taking out of the pattern in one would not be something I'd attempt by hand. Power tools....yes, power tools!! :)
