    Dave - I was tempted to solder it, but instead just filled it with 30 min Epoxy.

    Ryan - Thanks, I was inspired. It is the first I felt worthy of taking pics.

    Pesky - I may have to get another blade from Del to do another one; this one was a lot of fun. I am planning to do some some in W2, but I am notorious for my long term projects--My friends claim I never finish anything and they are close to the mark.

    Doug,
    Turned out good, not what I would have done, but it is interesting. I have always liked damascus and copper, but I never would have thought of doing an entire handle out of it, way cool. As for more blades, you know where to find me.

    Copper is so, well, antiquated! Did you consider using PVC?

    Ryan - Absolutely. I am going to see what patina develops naturally first. I am experimenting with chemical aids on some of my scrap.

    David - I figured that PVC would take too long to develop a patina.

    Del - Thanks. It was an experiment. I am sure I will be back for more. However Newegg just took a big chunk on money, so I need to let the funds recover a bit. -Doug
