    El Pescador - Bright Idea or Crazy?

    I am not sure if it was a good idea to put my real name and phone number in my signature line here at the forums. Doing that makes it possible for crazy people to call me on the phone.

    El Pescador from the forum here called me on the phone.
    He had a bright idea that he wanted to tell me about.
    This might not be exactly what he said but it gives you the general idea.

    He said, "You live in Southern Oregon where all the hippies are at, and they tie dye everything. So how about tie dyed wood?"
    Well, it was an idea that was just strange enough that I thought I would see what I could come up with.

    Here are a couple blocks from the first batches. Black for the conservatives like Salty, and multicolor blue for the more adventurous types.



    So what do you think?
    Is El Pescador one of those crazy people?
    Or did he have a good idea?
    Me.....I'm on the fence. Could go either way.

    So does that mean you don't think Pesky is a crazy person?

    As my dad would say, 'you're living under the tyranny of the or.' He's both!

    lol. not sure if liking ty die is crazy. I can see how using these over many other things out there. I can see someone wanting similar for a customer, or themselves. Maybe just living in Oregon causes people to be "crazy"

    Wait a second,
    I'm the one in Oregon, not Pesky!

    I am just teasing about El Pescador.
    He is a friend and has come up with some good ideas.

    I also like both... The tie dye blue actually remind you of a piece I bought off you a while ago with some odd blues and purple type stuff going on... I wouldn't put it on a serious Japanese knife of mine(eventually those will all have redwood and ebony or buffalo horn), but for a nice set of scales on something I see more whimsical I'd like it alot.

    Well not crazy... but maybe he's a hippie at heart.

    The top one was pretty neat but the other piece, a bit too adventurous for me.
