    That deep fuller starts out as a 3/8" diameter but narrows to an 1/8" diameter so it's depth would remain deep as it went along the blade with the blade width narrowing.

    This required surface milling and a lot of stoning and blending and is one reason my elbow is out of elbow grease lol...

    I don't think I'll be undertaking another one of these any time soon. Great experience though. :thumbsup:

    My very simple hominid brain can't even figure out as to how hidden threaded hardware works with those inlayed looking handle scales!

    It is a large dagger. A bit larger than a typical Main Gauche, but would function as one. Honestly the idea behind it is a post apocalyptic murder weapon...

    6-32 pins bedded in 8-32 holes. They pop in and the acraglas becomes solid

    That's why, out of respect for your elbow, I'll take my boot dagger as machined:D

    Really, it's totally for your benefit...I'll take that one for the team;)

    Remember now your science,
    which says that when a thing has more perfection,
    so much the greater is its pain or pleasure.

    My dad’s EDC2. He used this to clean his septic tank a while ago, cut a bunch of roots that had grown in there and other septic tank stuff, then soaked it in bleach. I’ve seen it since but never got the “after” pics until the other day.
