After removing the clamps I trimmed excess off on the band saw. Then I used the knife to trace the line of the back of the blade tapering the sheath down toward the tip end and trimmed it with the saw before block sanding it, then did the same with the sharp side. I clamped sandpaper to the table under a square edged block to help sand the curved side to keep it square. After rough sanding, I ran it very gingerly on the router to get nice rounded corners. After routing it was time to hand sand it which really wasn't bad at all, using 150, 220, 320 and 400 grit I was done in under an hour.
