I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

Thanks.  The ivory is the inner parts from a tusk that is pretty busted up.  Some of it can't be worked at all, it's like chalk, but mostly it's like working bone, slow speeds and sharp belts are best.  It's like silk in the hand.

Geoof, simple is good and that one is great! I think too often makers seem to try and throw everything but the kitchen sink into a knife!!

 

Simple is like a woman with just a hint of perfume, clothed in a way that has your imagination working overtime to fill in the rest of what your eye can't see! 

 

A simple knife hits all those marks, not to much perfume and just enough visual to make you want to pick it up and get to know it!! mike drop.jpg

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft
