QC was reminded of the mora grind in your palomino thread.

To me it looks like you might have found some inspiration in Orlando.

Which or whatever I like the shape.

Do you do the high polish for engineering, aesthetics, both, or something else?

I polish them just because - no particular reason I suppose.  I guess it does force me to look at the grinds a little closer.  I don't hand sand my blades (handles are a whole different story) so, while there may be a few grinder scratches visible, I try an minimize that.  I'm getting a little better at it.  I'll probably soon start playing with different finishes.  Don't know that I'll go to a forced patina or coating, but will probably try some satin finishes.

Well the prospective owner, who signed up here to let me know he wanted it has not contacted me following his initial contact.  Maybe I was just supposed to send it to him and hope for payment?  Oh well.  Headed to a gun show today - maybe I'll see if there is any interest there.
