    If you like the drill, you might like to see a parser, the tool used for making decorative cut outs in knife scales.

    Didn't really get how it worked, but that is cool.

    A template is laid over the scale, and the tips of the tool are placed inside. By rotating the tool the point on the tip will cut away the scale, but the notch at the tip will catch on the edge of the template preventing it from going to deep. Kind of like a slow scratchy router

    Oh. That sounds like a PITA.

    They were demonstrated on the Wodwrights Shop on PBS some time ago. They are very fast and efficient at making recesses of any shape.

    A little late to the party, but I gotta say, those first two videos were a wonderful sight to see. You would hope and pray that some of those old guys had understudies who helped carry it on in a different way, perhaps hobbyist or otherwise.
