The requirements have been updated a bit to clarify how many nicks are acceptable on the finished edge.  As always, prior submissions are grandfathered in.

I usually don't do BBs but I am a sharpaholic.  Dulled this $5 Harbor freight hatchet chopping some bamboo stumps out.  So I touched it up...it'll shave now!

Found an old dull axe with many knicks. Sharpened it with a sharpening stone at first, then used an angle grinder to get a razor sharp edge.

This hatchet hasn't been sharpened yet in its lifetime, but it hasn't been used much either. I sharpened it, then took the rust off to make it look pretty again. I took out my macro lens to get some close up photos of the edge.
