    The north end of Australia has perpetual summer :)

    The temperatures are in Celsius so you will have to convert them to Fahrenheit

    I have been in search of my ideal Bushfinger for some time, I can never seem to find "The One"...but I liked the examples I acquired enough to hold on to them for now.[​IMG]

    Amazing how every handle profile is so different

    Note how much thicker the handle of the 1/8" SFT Osage is than the 5/32" Tapered Midnight Maple Burl

    That Midnight Maple Burl is pretty unique. I like it a lot and I don't usually like the colored woods too much.

    How many 3/32 Bushfingers are out there? Is that a newer thing?

    A super thing OS Lady or B'finger is on my want list. A thin but wide blade would be sweet!

    I have an OS lady in 3/32" as well. A tall thin blade is about perfect

    I've got an OS Lady in 3/32 and love it. It came from Abe too.

    You guys are making me repent selling those. Bob & Nathan, I had a feeling that you liked the blades way more than I did.

    Thanks for looking Phillip. I think it's a cool thing to see more thin stock. I'll just have to save up for one, or a few. :)

    I'm a big fan of my 3/32 Ladyfinger. I'm a little shy about using it hard, probably because it's so damn gorgeous, but also I don't want to damage it. Though I think thats's a bit unwarranted, but I'll just carry an axe and use the Lady for light work. I should be getting a 1/8 Bushfinger here in the next month or two (one that's posted in this thread actually ;) ), and I think that will pair very nicely with a folding saw as a do it all woods combo.
