Looks fantastic. Quick question, is the location of the makers mark going to cause it to be covered up? (if it is, that ok. I was just curious)

I didn't think of that when I marked it it may be covered. But it should now hold a great really workable edge now that the taper is flatter and clean. It should be a good daily used just remember to drill your pin holes with carbide. Nothing else works well I've tried.
