Looking good Dave. You have been coming up with some interesting handle materials.

I'm also digging your new logo leather stamp.

Nice.  Good price.

Thanks guys.  I finally broke down and bought a stamp for marking the knives.  I had already heat treated this steel, so it wasn't a candidate.

I also picked up some new stencil material (old roll was pitting too much).......Now - if I can just find an IBM Selectric at a great price......

I often use bamboo skewers for pins.  I just buy them at the local grocery store.  They hold up well, don't cost much and I like the way the end grain looks.

Wow, that's cool. Are they strong enough to do anything, or do they even need to? I guess it's all about the epoxy?

Awesome!

I believe that all slab type scales need to be pinned because the (insert your favorite adhesive here) can fail on lateral movement.  I have found that the bamboo holds up as well as any other pins I have used so far.
