    Will I found some old post on the forum that answered the shark verses ray question. Did anyone have any luck with the dogfish skin?

    Will thank you so very much
    I am a little confused though its ray not shark? Also as I proceed may I burden you with some additional questions on the process?

    Hello Will
    I have been following your and example working small areas slowly roving the rust from the blade of my badly treated WW 1 1897 pattern. It is working very well. The grip is in bad shape also wire broken partly missing fish skin tatterd. But the wood is solid.
    I have disabled the grip removed the gard grip ect. I intend to recover the grip and replace the wire. Can you recomend anyplace to get the shark skin?
    Thank you
    Jim

    Hi Will

    I was just reading your post about ebay making swords more common. I would like to purchase more of my items in person & handle the weapon before purchase. But I find there is a lack of locations to do so. I have visited auctions & military shows. Do you know of other retailers in Ontario that carry Military swords? It seems selling weapons publicly in a shop has become quite controversial.
