    These knives had some damage to the edges, the profiles were wonky, and the damascus was scuffed and scratched up a bit.

    I fixed the edges, then reprofiled to customer specs, thinned for performance, and etched the damascus for effect.

    Well, it's not that hard really. I just grind the blade (using a belt grinder) to thin it, then (near) mirror polish it, then etch it in ferric chloride.
