Great job on old sparky Saint Nick.

I'm not much of a pun guy, but sharp work! I mean, really, that's some spirited carving, to say the least! Really something one could use on holiday.

Ok... I'm done....

Very nice piece. 
Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

He looks great, Buckskin!    Thank you for letting us watch you as you created him!  :)

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

Oh man. I got this in the mail the other day and looks even cooler in person. I've been working my butt of all weekend and haven't had a chance to try it out or take some picks of it. Thanks again Buckskin!

Alright, so my camera really sucks at taking close ups. Like I said before, the carving is absolutely awesome. It was exactly what I asked for only way better. When I first got it I thought, "Damn, how am I going to bring myself to actually use this". Well, after I snap some pics I decided no guts, no glory. It strikes some fearsome sparks!

Glad you like it.  I have been impressed with those ferro rods for the amount of spark they make.
