    So I finally received this W&B in the mail and I was pretty excited to start a new restoration. I fully inspected the blade for any chips and cracks, besides the slight taper, I was happy with it (so I thought). I finally had some time to do some work on it this morning. I get the sandpaper out and start sanding. It only took a few minutes to notice this!!!

  11. Dang. I hope it wasn't expensive.

    Had a similar experience myself last month. The crack was invisible until i had sanded on it for 20 minutes or so.

    Sorry for your lloss, bro!
     
  13. As much as this sucks, at least you didn't break it yourself.

    It was already broken.
