I've got an Albion X bare blade in the pipeline, and I was wondering if there's anyone in the states that can establish an edge geometry, sharpen the thing, and give it a basic polish? I'd like someone whose backlog isn't too long (so that kind of rules out Ernie at Yeshua's swords..)

I am not sure if there's someone here in this forum who can finish your blade, Mike.

I think Leo Todeschini (Todd's Stuff) could do it as he makes some of the blades for his commissions.

Ernie is certainly one of the better known guys for this. That backlog is a suck, though.

However may I suggest posting on Sword Buyer's Guide? There are a number of amateur blade-smith types on that board who may be happy to take you up on that project.

You can try Ollin sword design. They did some work for me several years ago.

though, like everyone else, they may also be swamped with work.

Rex D MetCalf could probably do it.

He has this odd way of looking at a thing and knowing how to do it right.
