kevin, it's hard to break that stuff, i had a skinny piece of cutoff and it bent into a pig tail without breaking. all though i did ruin about 4 inches of 1/4 inch brass by not heating before bending  :( .


looking fantastic lin.

wonderful tutorial, Lin. Your careful attention to detail and high standards are reflected in this as well as your knives.

Lin,
Your long finger guard on this knife and those shown on your web site are an outstanding safety feature that is undervalued these days.  Back in the 60s while on my third caribou of the day I gave myself a nasty cut due to the tiny guard and tired hands.  I'm sell off some knives so I can order one of your knives to show the kids how art and craftsmanship can come together to create beauty and value.
