A few weeks ago on a different thread Leo said "What I would say that should you find a worthwhile knife be it the steel or the shape it could well be worth the work to remove the imperfections that in reality is very rewarding . " i completely agree. I regularly look for cheap knives that can be saved and fix them up. I usually find them at flea markets but occasionally will have customers give me knives if they are not wanted orif the cost to fix it outweighs the cost of the knife. Here's one work in progress i recently got. Anyone else have before and after shots of fixed up knives?

Diamonds in the rough make markets fun to go to. I mainly try to pick up old carbon kitchen knives but whatever.
