To etch or to temper first, that is the question...

Sharpening - That's what I'll do. At worst it will be a conversation piece and a cool letter opener.

I'll try the dip for longer too. Like I said before, one of the things I want to improve on is the thickness in the centre of the blade. I think that because it is so thick is why the hammon line isn't really prevalent since the core is still covered with mild steel. I could take a grinder to it too I guess but I don't have one of those fancy smancy 2" blade sanders yet.
