    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.

    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.
