  1. I had missed this earlier post, that handle is really (really) lovely!
  2. Mastery in elegance. Such beautiful work from both of you... Thank you for sharing, Jim.
  3. I absolutely love seeing those test plates and following your progress sculpting those complex designs. Thank you for sharing your journey!
  4. What an incredible beauty! Very well done.
  5. I find habakis to be incredibly finicky. Getting them to close up "just right" is a challenge that barely gets any easier with practice. You're been doing a lovely job on the big blade in spite of your setbacks (which imho only make it more impressive), can't wait to see it completed!
  6. What a beauty... Like Doug said, it really makes you want to pick it up an feel it in your own hand. I wish I could. Excellent work!
  7. That is such creative and beautiful work! Thank you for sharing this.
  8. What did I do in my future shop today. Back in June I moved out of the US and back to my home country in France with my fiancée and we've been in a bit of a limbo ever since. It took some time but we finally found and bought a house that ticked all the boxes. It's an old farm house from the 1850's, with an attached barn that will eventually serve as my shop. "Eventually" because there's quite a bit of work to do before we can actually move in, and the barn will serve as a staging area for the renovations for the next few months. Still, I found myself strangely excited about cleaning up all the donkey crap from the floor. N95 required, seriously. If you squint hard enough, you can see a really nice shop there, I swear. I'm excited to be back at it eventually, this is turning out to be a very long year...
  9. I absolutely love this. It was great to see the additional photos on your site too, it is a beauty.
  10. Wishing you the best for your recovery, and thank you for the reminder, I do feel we sometimes get a little too comfortable, particularly when working with belt grinders.
  11. Wonderful! Anybody wants to try this with 24k gold?
