  6. I'm not sure how you processed the bottom piece compared to the top piece. The top piece seems to have been worked too many times now,if you have a rolling machine and rolled it length wise it would make the lines wider but lengthen the rod.
  7. Blade magazine August 2005.... Toast Cutter contest I was a newbie making a few stock removal blades for fur trade era rendezvous and this contest started on Knife Network forum.
