    Sorry everybody; I've been hammered by this virus that is going around, and have been unable to get to the post office until today.
    Timthebeaver has had to rain check this pass around, which is a shame, but it means that it will get to you that bit earlier, Tom.

    Something to note- on this knife I used traditional cutler's pitch rather than epoxy. I'll be interested to see how it holds up.

    Sorry Dan wasn't chasing you, hope you're recovering

    Did you make up the resin yourself? I've considered giving it a go for Wa rehandles

    Yes, Tom, I made it myself. It should do famously for a wa handle, if it is of the "pure" stick tang type (which I guess traditionally were a friction fit?) rather than the profiled "step" type. Like a lot of "old tech" methods, I'm sure there is a lot of details that need to be ironed out. I thought I might as well give it a whirl for the pass around. I'm not sure I'd be fully confident in selling a knife made using it, yet.

    So is the UK passaround happening? The threads gone a bit quiet all of a sudden.

    My knife account has recently received some new funds and I'd really like to buy local this time. If the knife is as good is I expect it will be, you can expect a new commission. Plus I have a beautiful piece of highly figured koa that needs using. I think it will look good on a Prendergast knife.

    Just to confirm that the knife has arrived safe and sound.
