Mike, it sure looks beautiful. You have seasoned it yes? Considering what you have went through, I'd say it come out very good indeed. You can't, or at least I can't, tell from the picture that it was sandblasted at all.

Yea- Perry its been seasoned-  I'm done with this thing!  [smiley=beer.gif]  Someone could sure be fooled by the pics.  All the buffing and 2 dark seasoning sessions did kind of soften the blasting effect and at a distace it looks pretty good, but in hand an experienced eye can easily see something isn't right.  Don't think there is a repair for sand or bead blasting.  Mike
