    Holy ****! How did I not realize this?! You do tattoos! This is a no-brainer!

    Mike, your knives are going to be so insanely badass.

    I mean, a lot of guys can be like "look, I carved some leaves into the spacer". You can put their kid's face on the ferrule!

    I joked to Spike about doing scrimshaw a while back in a thread. You are actually doing it! Well done. You are very talented!

    The scrimshaw that I did on Son's knife was constrained by the parameters of the project. It needed to be rustic and have a primitive feel, and be of a durable nature so that it would still be there after a lot of use. Most scrimshaw is purely decorative but this needed to be functional as well. It was an interesting project, and I will be interested in seeing how it holds up!

    and I appreciate it. I will be presenting the knife in person at the end of July, I'm going to go home for a little bit. Maybe see if I can dig up some more of my stuff. Somewhere, I have a wicker trunk full of cleavers, 39" long cow splitter, one 36" long hog splitter. If I can find them I also have some fossilized sea cow bones and a few oosics.
    I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
