    A video playlist of handle removal and installation

    as billy said, it really depends on the actual species of rosewood (thousands of them) that you are dealing with. If we are just talking about generic rosewood that we see in say Echizen handles (which ironically is not true rosewood, otherwise it will be banned from intl. trade) then they are...

    A video playlist of handle removal and installation

    Simple answer: just go for the cheap one. There is difference between the melting temperature, setting time, however I found the ones designed for household glue gun just work fine.

    A video playlist of handle removal and installation

    the very first samples could be epoxy, and we do occasionally use epoxy in some extreme cases. For example when a knife is extremely thin overall (some lasers), using epoxy just feels better with little wobble. J.

    A video playlist of handle removal and installation

    Just to let you guys know that I have composed a playlist on the topic of rehandling on my youtube channel which I recently started to put more effort into. There is a ton of misinformation out there about how to install handles, particularly using the burn-in method on hardwood handles. I also...

    Domain name change and SALE

    Knives and Stones Australia has been using the domain www.knivesandstones.com from the beginning, as it was easier to remember (IMHO). In late 2019, we have started our US operations with the domain name www.knivesandstones.us, yet it is not the ideal name because virtually no US business uses...

    New Yorker Discount

    Thanks for the insight. So basially at this stage, at least in 2019, I don't need to worry about charging tax other than NY, so my temporary discount works (for now). Luckily Shopify handles all the tax, so all good for now!

    New Yorker Discount

    yeah, that is the idea. I simply don't want to the NY customers to feel disadvantaged, so the current solution is to to give out the discount code. I want to have a broader sense of the US market first, before fine tuning everything.

    New Yorker Discount

    Yeah, as I said, I wish to be able to do an automatic discount, but of course shopfiy doesn't have this function (unless some app or some custom coding). hence I created the coupon code, which again won't allow me to set limits based on location. The temporatory solution is this hard 10%...
