I like how you have the names of tools on your tool board. So you can ask a tool illiterate person "pass me the rivet gun would ya mate?", and they can feel like they are helping you and not totally useless.

Although the evil in me says you could ask for a couple of named tools ... then ask for something not named and watch them panic. /evil laugh

Pass me the left handed claw hammer, the right handed screw driver, a bucket of stripy paint, a skyhook and a long-weight please.

Technically yes, but you know the old scoop mate.

Technically, alcohol IS a solution....

Getting back on topic...

The blade in your current build excites me the most. I see it as being the sort of default blade I would choose to cut stuff up in the kitchen.

The dark and light timber trick is awesome.

I havent seen the patterns filed on the the back edge of the blade before. I am not 100% sold on the idea. Great for decoration but less functional as it may get food or kitten bits stuck in it. I also wonder if it would look 'better' with the pattern stopping at the handle. Props to you and your mad filling / metal working skills though.

Thanks mate.

File-work on the spine is purely decorational and non-functional. For kitchen knives it's impractical but for personal knives/traditional knives it gives a bit of character and a personal touch. Some blades the pattern goes all the way around, others it stops at the handle, others just have a very short section of it. It's all up to the commissioner or blade-smith.

Baz.

WTB time travel machine to go into the future 2 yrs to see the double edged swords with fillings/engravings down the sides of the blades...

Ok so I want the time travel machine for other reasons as well but I would still check your crafts out. :P
