    Thank you for the kind words everyone, I appreciate it. It's a fun and challenging thing to do during the winter when my biz is slower. Kinda turned into a labor of love (lobe). Definitely cuts into my fly tying time, which is good... cuz that gets boring. I'm working on one more now which I'll add here when I'm done.

    Excellent work!!! That Damascus blade is really fine looking.
    What is "G-10"?

    I'll bet your favorite TV show is "Forged in Fire" isn't it? ;-)

    Forged In Fire is absolutely my favorite series, have watched every season, every episode.
    G-10 is a woven and stacked composite, extremely strong and not too difficult to work with... excellent material. Comes in an endless variety of color combinations and inexpensive. http://usaknifemaker.com/knife-handl...c-c-95-36.html

    This is a taxidermy knife that I made a while back using G-10 that is layered black/orange. You can get a little creative with it.

    That's cool.
    Forged in fire is awesome. I've watched it and I've got a place, a lot of the tools, but I'm missing the patience. I know my limitations and I know I'd get 1/2 way through a rush it and ruin it. So I'll admire yours ;-)

    Nice as always. I'll take #2... You really should look into slow speed grinders, for shaping and sharpening..the steel never gets hot.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    My next belt grinder will be one of these 3-speed KMG's: http://www.beaumontmetalworks.com/sh....aspx?catid=20

    For sharpening, I own the Wicked Edge system. It just doesn't get any sharper than that: https://www.wickededgeusa.com/produc...VqrxoCWFvw_wcB

    Nice, esp the three speeds. I'd like one of those sanders on Forged in Fire...a never miss for me as well.
