    WOW, That was fast! Go figure??? the first package, sent PRIORITY MAIL took 5 days. This package sent 1st class was only 2 days. Crazy!!!

    I look forward to seeing what you come up with on the handle.

    Ok, finally got the horn cut....Man does this stuff ever STINK! Got almost all the pieces rough cut to shape. This is fun stuff! I can see a LOT of hidden pins in my near future...

    Got the damascus dirty etched to see how it would look with the copper and horn...Will be cool when it is final etched!

    Ok, I have been slow going due to having the flu for the last week or so.....But last night i manned up and spent a little while out in the shop. All the pieces are cut(Farther than they are here in the pic) and the rear bolster assembly is glued up(blackwood/copper/damascus/copper) The frame has a tab that interlocks with the rear bolster, locking the assembly together, also includes a total of ten hidden pins per side(6 per scale and 2 running length wise into each bolster)
    Here is a mock up, finishing and hopefully profiling today

    Good decision, it would be a crime to waste those handle materials... especially the horn.
