    Thanks @solphilos!!! I think they were made via a manmade "lightning machine;" a smaller, somewhat controlled form. :)

    I do not normally carry Wood on Wednesdays like a lot of you , but today I did carry 2 Desert Ironwoods . While I had them out , I decided to add the Mesquite to the Waxing . The before and after pictures Do Not show much difference . Raining out all day today so photos were taken inside on the kitchen counter while my Bride of 60 + years is getting ready for tomorrows dinner that in a normal year would be feeding 20 + people and this year it will only be 4 people . We hope everyone has a Safe and Great Thanksgiving tomorrow .

    Thanks! Yes I carved it with a double spiral and scorched one of them with a mico torch. Now its "rare" and "one of a kind" probably can add "vintage" so I probably could sell it on etsy for $900 :D But I wont sell, as it was a gift.;)
    That teardrop wharncliffe is subline:cool::thumbsup:

    I really like this CASE Barlow, English Walnut covers and fit and finish is impeccable:thumbsup: I liked it before but even more now after converting the pen blade into a coping blade:) paired today with a small Tinker.

    Changed a half day early.
    August, 2020 Buck Web Special Brass, S30V, and Ebony 110 on my belt, and a Marbles MR431 D2 and black canvas Micarta series Sowbelly Stockman in my pocket.
    My faux/replica Cold War Era West German Bundeswehr GAK is close to hand in my pencil/pen cup, in the event I need the saw for the turkey fowl, or yams, or mashed taters, or gravy, tomorrow, and/or if I need a spar point to cut the green bans (or Asparagus, whichever they decide upon, into bite size.) The Schrade 1095 and "Schrade +" blades I've been carrying, might not be capable of cutting the big turkey day meal.

    I have less than zero doubt everything but the pre-made pies for desert will be overcooked, and will be about as easy to cut as a forged block or sheet of 6.3 titanium. :) "Ability to cook" does not seem to be on the list of skill sets for the staffettes that work shifts that meals are prepared. (many well in advance of being served.)

    I dropped the Tribal Lock in my pocket for tomorrow. The kids & grandkids are scattered over four states & all have decided not to travel, so it'll be just my wife & I for a quiet Thanksgiving dinner. It'll be the first holiday in years that I won't have to remove my hearing aids.:) With four different families in this old house it can get pretty loud.
