Nice handles, way better than the mass produced ones, good work.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.

Thanks everyone- the woodworking is the best part. Making the blades are a bit of a drag to make but in the end they turn out ok.
Keep the chips flying!

They look great! And I can attest that they cut great and are comfortable in the hand. Are you going to start selling your knives and stuff (do we need to start advertizing for you?)?

Mike-I have been toying with the idea of selling them. But I wanted to be certain they were well recieved and were an asset to carving. So far folks seem to enjoy using them, and say they love it that they dont need stropping as often.
I guess I should start a web site and see if there is enough interest in them to proceed in sales.
But any and all free advertising is always welcome. :-)
