OK, I let a kid use my knife a while back and then it disappeared. I finally found it in the fireplace with burnt wood and ashes on top of it (no wonder I couldn't find it!). The sheath got warped some but I think it'll be ok. Then last week I decided to get it out and clean it up some and use it, I noticed he or my son took it to the pedestal grinder to try to sharpen it and gouged the edge up pretty bad. I have worked on it for several hours trying to clean it up but it seems not to work. I am using the bevel as a guide and putting a scandi on it. I thought about using an air grinder with sanding disc to get it out and then put in on a stone???? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Also, the heat shrunk the leather and stiffened it, what can I do about that? I know ya'll will ask so here's some pics.
