Basically it is taking the sharp edges off.

It means to remove sharp edges. Some call it "melting" especially when it is done for CCW.

Clark Custom Guns does some extreme dehorning with their "Meltdown".

The Kimber CDP is a good example. Thats a pretty agressive dehorn job, to the point where they call it a "carry melt". Compare that to it's little sister the TLE and you'll see what I mean.

The dehorned 1911's look awesome to me.

There is also sightly dehorned types too. Where they round the edges a little so the finish lasts longer, but the lines are still there. The Dan weson Valor SS is a good example of very slightly dehorned.

IMO its a poor example. Mine is very uneven. I love the "melt" but it looks like it was by a drunk.
