    If you look at the pattern from left to right it looks like fish heads.

    Thanks Guys, its fun doing this old school twisty stuff. Glad your enjoying it too. The apparent hump on the spine, is a photographic thing probably, as it was flatted on a ceramic tile platten, of course it all gets tweaked and checked a bit more before and after HT. I find most blades curve up a bit during HT, as any belly to the blade has more surface area.

    I just got a package of flamed redwood (old door) and the last of the red koa back from K&G.
    I will pull some good ones for you.
    Just a FYI, I think the Red Koa is haunted.
    It came from the estate of a Native Hawaiian that insisted that stuff like it was only for other natives.
    Not to be sold to outsiders. The grandson who inherited thought differently when getting money together for a vacation.
    So....if you hear ukelele music in the middle of the night......

    Cheers Mark...Ukelele playing spirits sound quite nice, as long as no - ones head starts spinning around or the walls start bleeding

    Well inbetween waiting for things to anneal or temper in the electric oven, I got the grind on this one started...
    First ground a flat bevel each side.

    Now for some hollowing on the faces.



    Quick etch to see if the pattern changes mach as we grind in, its changed a little, looking allot more Viking

    Next stage will be to get that bevel flat and even, then move down to the lower grits on the convexing then hand finishing, logo, etch etc..
    Mark sent bog oak for the ferrule and some cool mango for the main block. I'm thinking split ferrule, black, with either a thick white/cream spacer, maybe mammoth, bog oak end cap...?
    This thing is going to be an utter laser btw, was not quite what I intended, I had not realized how much I would need to grind back on this pattern, but its is plenty stiff, due to the height...the geometry is starting to look good
