    Pin & Hole Sizing - What method do you use?

    Gudday mate. I am no expert but this is what works for me. I only us 1/4 and 1/8 inch pins. So you only need two size drill bis and remers of same size. Drill your holes and ream.

    Cutting G10

    Thankyou for comments. What happens if you use the metal blade for cutting wood? Is 'bimetal' designed for wood and metal? Why is a custom blade better?

    Double blade trapper

    That is simple and elegant. Sometimes we try to bring too many different elements into the one knife. Very special job. Question: What is the process to put a shield into the handle? Always been reluctant to try.

    A potential order

    Opaul, your knives are quality and would be worth every cent of that price. The reluctance to accept the price is usually in the head of the seller not the buyer.

    Slowly Catching Up on Sheaths

    I would like to start making sheaths and wasn't sure where to start with a machine. If I live to be 250 years old, I might get to the bottom of my 'to do' list. Cheers. Scrimshaw!

    Thankyou very much. Very helpful. A couple more items for my shopping list. Who would have though you 'needed' so many things just to make a knife! Better do some work that I actually get paid for now. Cheers.
