    Noooooo :D

    Honestly, I target to remove the least amount of steel necessary to get back to correct geometry, there are tons of full hollows to buy both New and Vintage, they are far fewer Heavy Grinds :D no need for me to make more with vintage Sheffield steel that can't be replaced ... JMHO
