    Glad you liked it Greg, it's dry stuff but it gives some insight to the process and the Mickey Mouse Operation you're dealing with!!:D

    The cool blue stuff works ridiculously well but is messy and stains the blade. I'm gonna order some of the reusable putty type stuff and see how that works.

    The cheesy music tops off the tacky video perfectly lol.

    They're all soldered up, I can't promise they'll all turn out like this one but I'm gonna do my best.

    That's #5 above, they all turned out pretty nice. I'm sure you guys are tired of pics of soldering. I'll get these taped up and the front spacers on.

    This will sound menial, but these boxes are worth their weight in gold and have made a huge difference in the shop.

    All guards are soldered and finished, front spacers are fit up flush. I'll get these taped and start the leather stack. I'll be making one block and cutting it into eight sections.

    I wish more new knife knuts would see threads like this. It would sure help them understand the work that you knife manglers put into the knives we love.
