    Work in progress thread

    That is very interesting. I hope to be doing some things like this in the near future. I akso like the fact that you have 3 sections in the blade. I've always considered that damascus patterns in a razor hollow look best if there are roughly 3 sections, whether it is mosaic like this or for...

    French is derived from latin and recognizable as such. Being from belgium, being bilingual in dutch and french is mandatory. As soon as they hit middle school, english is mandatory as well. My daughter has the highest grades for english in her school. She reads psychological thrillers in...

    There are 3 alphabets. The first is hiragana. It's a phonetic one with 50 to 70 characters, depending on how you count. The second is katakana. It has the exact same characters with the exact same meaning s, but the look completely different. This one is used to write words borrowed from...
