A couple weeks ago I bought a Dubl Duck from an antique store. Below are the original pictures.
After further inspection I noticed a crack in the scales near the pivot pin. When removing the scales, they snapped completey though. There were several deep spots of pitting on the blade and following recommendations here I began the progression of sandpaper from 150 to 12000 (found at hobby lobby). I wasn't able to remove many of the pits but wasn't sure if I should go lower in grit due to the thinness of the blade (thoughts, ideas?). It is very smooth to the touch now, but they are still visible.
Now I need to put together some scales. I'm leaning towards doing these in a zebrawood but will probably spend some time at the local wood store checking out different options.
*Please ignore the camera and finger reflections...there is only so much I can do with a smartphone.
More pictures to follow as it progresses. Go easy on me, it's my first attempt.
