    Cool, looks like this is actually happening. We expect full photo documentation, of course

    BTW, if anybody has not yet decided on a wood for the handle, I just got in some stabilized macadamia nut, mango and a few others that I will send out to Dave tomorrow...

    Geez Stefan. Macadamia Nut, Mango??? I've never even seen these woods stabilized or used for knife handles.

    Will the next batch include even more exotic things like Tyrannosaurus Rex fossilized teeth, Loch Ness Monster bone, Dodo beak?

    So Dave, in order to manage my excitement, what does this mean in terms of people actually getting their knives? I think I am #10 on the list.

    #10? You're screwed!


    Nah I hope not. Actually the process will be to next smooth out any rough spots, drill a hole or two, and get them off to heat treat. While they're out there getting their Rc on I'll be setting up things and getting the assembly line ready to attack upon their return.

    How long after that?

    Good guess Michael I was actually thinking about Dinosaur bone material, but you need lapidary equipment for some of that which I don't have. Well, I do have some mammoth bone I want to play with if I ever get to it. Someone also wanted me to make a handle from oosik (fossilized walrus penis) but I wasn't sure I could do it and the sizes were awkward. Will have to look into that again....

    Stefan

    P.S. Sorry Dave, don't want to plaster your thread, so I'll keep quiet for now.

    My dad's friend is a knifemaker here in town and I was at his shop and he handed me something and said, "I'm going to make a handle out of this soon." I asked him what it was and he said, "Walrus penis." Funny stuff!

    Awkwardly sized fossilized walrus penis? Oh, lord, where do I start?
