Mike!!!It’s perfect, we call your method the American way of a Scandinavian knife…When this is said, then it’s a wonderful way, and when you have a long blade and only need to use the tip, I see no better way at all. So it’s the way to go, no complains from here… lol.I have not hat the energy for wood working the last days, so I did not take the time to look what blades I have in stock here. But if I have a short blade I will be happy to make a tutorial for the Scandinavian way, but ony if some one have the wish, otherwise I will do what ever needed, and make no blog.You have done a exelent blog again, thank you.Best of my thoughts,Mads

Hi Mads, I couldn’t remember what the English word was for what you called the ‘bolster’. Then it came to me. the work is ‘ferrule’ I looked it up on the net to be sure and found this link which you may or may not be interested to see. http://www.britishblades.com/forums/showthread.php?12565-Ferrule-Tutorial
I very much doubt you need any tutorial on the subject, so this was just for fun. Coincidentally, the knife I used for my lag knife had a ferule like the one in the link. I probably won’t be able to use it, because the blade probably isn’t thick enough where the ferrule would be placed.
Thanks for the nice comment on the little carving mallet. I need to turn a new one soon as I have used this one disrespectfully on occasion and it is a bit battered.
I hope you will be feeling better soon. It is good to see that you are following with and I appreciate your comments.

Thank you mike,Yes I was thinking of this, sorry my English…But just a simple ring like on a chisel, nothing fanzy, just to avoid it from splinter if you put in force.My health are ok, I’m just out of strenghts, so I need to recharge the old battery.Thank you for the link.Best thoughts,Mads
