    To keep myself on the ball and get things done I am going to show a couple of things I got down in Texas.

    The top one is a Wootz blade I got from Bruno. I am not sure that it is the one he posted in an earlier thread but it looks the same. My job is to put a handle on it. All I know at this time it will have to incorporate some sort of glow in the dark material.

    The second is a piece I got from Scott that is 1095 sandwiched between 410 stainless. I am thinking with this material and my skills at this time a knife blade is a good choice for this.

    Any thoughts and comments are welcome. If I don't post anything new in a short time please give me a hard time and tell me to get my rear in gear!

    Nice project. I think I'd finish the knife then start on the other. But, no slacking. I hope to see some progress by this weekends end! :cool:

    Enjoy the process! After the blades find a home, that is what you take with you!

    I have a similar knife project at home. Mine also needs a handle and honing. I have had mine on the project board for a while. I hope yours gets done faster.

    If you enjoy glow in the dark, there are blocks of burl and glow in the dark hybrid materials. Resinwood or shokwood.

    Glow in the dark can be fun and after giving you a hard time about one of your projects I want to incorporate at least a little of it in this.

    Bees, just got back from a 6 day fishing trip and it is Morel season! Made 3 lbs of Ramp butter early last week and my wife pickled some when I was gone.

    Variety is the spice of life but I many times feel a little jealous of people that can focus and get obsessed with one thing.

    I did pull out some bone slabs that I think would look good but still need to get something that is glow in the dark for the middle.
