Hi ladies and gents newbie here so be nice to me especially if this has been asked before!
I am the very proud owner of a 3rd pattern Fairburne Sykes fighting knife which I'm in the process of sympathetically restoring. So to my question having gently cleaned and polished it I think it was one of the half / half knives. I.E. Bright, polished blade and originally a black handle and guard. The blacking has long since been worn off and I think I'd like to get it redone:-
1. Should I re-black it or leave it alone,
2. If yes to re-black I think I'd like it done professionally, any suggestions?
Thanks in anticipation of any help in this matter.
