Nassssty Black Paint All Gone

I have a Cold Steel Trail Hawk and a Becker BK5 knife (made by Ka-Bar) that came from the factory with black paint on the steel: the hawk just a single layer of glossy black, the Becker with a well-executed baked-on finish. Both of them had the paint removed early this morning, I'm happy with the results:



I think that the hawk needs a leather thong wrapping around the handle for a better grip.

I've always been partial to the CS Rifleman's Hawk, myself.....
