    This little project was murder. It was almost pointless to try and save it, but it shaves now. There is pitting that I just couldn't get rid of. Scales are finished in CA, pinned with brass and a micarta spacer. It's a bit blade heavy but easy to shave with and is in my rotation at the moment.

    Au contraire. I think it was definitely worth saving, and those scales really gave it new life!

    It is so nice that I had to look up 'spalted' on google! Don't have the gear to work with found wood (which I assume you do?), but I'm green with envy of your skill.
