    I have been thinking about one, no actual plans drawn up yet but I think it will eventually happen.

    I might make an edc style Balisong versus a big flipper, I like the clean design aspect of them. Of course it has to flip well too! I'll see when I am closer if there is much demand for one, I am not set on my direction with them yet.

    These are close! I have everything with scales ready for sheaths... sharpening and pics after that!

    I'm cutting some dinosaur bone today for menukis... I will start with a slab of rock and end up with 2 cabochons sanded to 50,000 grit!

    Does this mean you've etched the steel? Can we see? :D

    Oh yeah, I really hope for some. The damascus looks killer too! Etching Damascus is one of the most fun parts of knifemaking, it is fun to see the steel transform. I took them to 900 grit so the contrast is amazing. I took the Dinosaur bone to 50,000 grit over 3 sawing, 6 wet sanding and 2 dry polishing steps. The wraps are done and I'm about to go soak them.


    For those who are wondering, yes I'm talking real petrified dinosaur bone! It is gem grade, not stabilized and with great cellular structure. This particular rough is killer, I picked it from thousands of pounds and it is some of my favorite. The cells are half grey and half red... each one like that so the effect is really cool to me.



    I'll try for pics first, my camera has been giving me problems lately... took tons today and all came almost colorless no matter what.
