    Oh dang, I just offered a customer that I would try it out... Mario, I'll be glad about any tips you have for me, I have had several pieces of this material around for years but was too much of a coward to use it

    Stefan if you are lucky that mammoth had a sweet tooth,all the other chunks I have used so far were like balsa compared to this piece.

    So, with a Foredom equipped with a diamond wheel and bits with diamond tips I should be o.k.? I was also wondering about masonry drills any thoughts on those? A few of my pieces fell apart but they seem to glue back together real nice. I'll see what happens when I cut the length or drill into them. In any case, Mario, you make them look really great...

    First of all, I think the handle is awesome. As for the profile, it looks like you have the profile pretty much dialed in. The tip does look a hair rounded compared to the one I got from you so I think it will perform a little differently than mine. But, I do like the way this one is shaping up. Looks really, really good Mario.

    What about for polishing all that cpm154!?
    That's one of the most abrasion resistant and hard to polished steels I've used, and that's one of the most perfectly finished blades I've seen. I would love to know your methods and machinery for that.
