    The point is, you don't have to scratch the blade to properly sharpen a knife.

    deadin that knife isn't bad. So even in the pictured condition, you bought it. Showing it had some value to someone.

    Shame is most folks have no clue on how to put a decent edge on a blade...
    Guess no one showed them.

    I have the same knife as posted as op has shown.... I got mine in 1977 new for my 11th birthday, and about 5 years later one of my friends and I were hunting the Missouri breaks near Fort Benton , Mt and he nailed a muley deep in a gully, and he asks me for my knife as I was going over the hill after some of the deer from the same cell..... I lent him my treasured Uncle Henry and to my dismay when I received it back both blades were chipped from stearn to bow... I was perplexed to say the least. He said he had tried to chop through the brisket, and I said I guess so. Anyway, I salvaged it with a stone, and it will remain as my main big game hunting knife until I go to the ages... scratches are but scratches and histoy, keep walking the field and enjoy the excellent Uncle H.
