    Yes sir, I don't have any of the big tools some makers have, so it took about 4 hours to forge.

    And thanks!

    OK, finally got it together, work has not been kind to the old fart! (Well not that old, just older Thanks Jon Bon)
    Here you have it, nickle silver/copper mokume, pure nickle and black vulcanized fiber spacers, green tone mammoth tooth
    Exhibition desert ironwood burl, and a single mosaic pin. There are other pins, those are hidden.
    I hope you like it! Comments welcome.

    Oh yeah, those spacers are curved, PITA but I think it worked out OK. Rounded choil and spine.

    I saw the curve in the spacers, has me baffled. Will you please stop raising the bar, how will I ever catch up?

    Is that Charles Turnage? Are you the guys who always outbid me on this stuff?

    Actually, I haven't bought one in a while, still have a few sitting here, not really knowing how to deal with them. Two of them fell apart when I looked hard at them, this stuff can be really brittle. How do you work the mammoth tooth? What tools for drilling and cutting?

    Oh, and I am not totally clear: What do you mean with the spacer is curved? In which direction? Should I be wearing my glasses?

    Of course, the knife looks stunning, beautiful work!

    The curve is happening between the spacer components, they are ground at a 3" radius, the black and silver spacers are then bent to match the radius in the other components.

    Yes Charles Turnage, sorry, some stuff I got to have

    For working it, a thin cut off disk in the angle grinder to cut it, belt grinder to shape and polish it, and diamond burs or carbide bits to drill it. If it cracks CA glue will hold it together, also use CA to fill any voids and seal cracks.
