I am starting with the 8cm stainless steal blade. I have a few pictures so you can see how the different spacer sizes look.
Last week I was given a Hägg branch. (Prunus Padus – Bird Cherry)

I was plesantly surprised on the colour and its nice and strong, you can see my trade mark bands saw burn marks..

Bolster. 22m wide I am showing you the colour here again so you can visualise the knife before it drilled, filed and glued.

apple wood spacer

wider spacer

thin elk spacer

As you can see it can change easily by adding bigger and smaller spacers or adding apple wood.

being as i am having a night of tv and onion rings and habernero’s with molten cheese.. I decided to do pack it away in the icecream tub.. this is a must.. the bits of wood are smallish and easily misplaced. keeps every thing safe for when i get back.

-- Englishman in Finland I am guessing that i am Finglish.
