I picked up a nice condition little C40 off eBay with an OS mug and began my restore.
Removed the knot, separated the handle as it was loose (penmanship twisted it off in error when it arrived at work )
Did some sanding and buffing and am now sizing up knots (TGN) and will hopefully order one soon.
It's coming along quite nicely. You will notice the mold lines in the 1st set of pics, but look at the 2nd set....where did they go?
