    I have not made a test spoon of the tasters, but I like the shape and size of this one with a longer handle.

    Chuck,
    I did make one out of AEBL, but I made it a bit thin. The damascus may look a bit different than this, but it should be close.

    Thanks,

    So I wote the above message near 12:30 am and I tried to go to bed right after that, closed my eyes and laid there for 15 mins, nothing happened. Got up for a half hour and tried again, did this until 2 am and finally gave up, went out to the shop to cut up stock for damascus.(I have to get the kids up for school at 6 am and I knew that by 2 I wasn't going to get up at 6 even if a bomb went off) Tripped and almost fell on my face in the detritus of the past 2 months of knifemaking, decided unilaterally it was time for a bit of shop cleanup, so I spent the last 4 hours cleaning. I made some serious progress too. I feel a bit tired now, but better than I usually do when I get up at 6. If I stay up I'll go cut up more stock. On a side note we do have a dusting of snow now, its about time.

    I'm having one of those days too Del. Got into bed at 12 and its coming up on 9 now, and I've yet to get a minute of sleep. Turned into a cleaning/reading night. Take the day off to relax! The spoons may not get done today, but hey everyone needs a day to just relax!

    Hopefully by working with spoons there's less chance of slicing off a finger if you make a sleep-deprived mistake!
