    Re: PFEIL "Swiss Made" Brienz Carver's K

    Already doing that. I've made some out of files and actually got some 'german steel' from a guy I used to get wood from. He saves all his old de-barking blades from his sawmill and gives them out to people. I don't know what they're hardened to, but they are tough to put an edge on and stay sharp forever.

    I also made one out of a jigsaw blade. I use it almost like a pencil --but it doesn't hold an edge for long.

    I'm actually in the process of making a new handle for one of my knives right now. It's the first knife I got--another carver gave it to me when I expressed an interest in carving, but the handle was just too small.

    Enough rambling for now.

    If you've got large hands like some of us out here, why don't you get a couple warren or murphy blades and make you own. That way you can make the handle exactly like you want it and it won't cost you a whole lot. Well, maybe could cost you a lot, because it could get addicting.

    I got to spend some time talking with the gentleman from Quackwood Knives while I was at the ICC. He seemed interesting and was willing to make custom handles for knifes (With my long fingers, that's always a quetion for me.) Has anyone else heard about his knives? He's got a lot of different shapes.

    Thank you FX. It takes me a few attempts to determine if I like a particular knife.

    PFEIL "Swiss Made" Brienz Carver's Knife

    I was recently in the Woodcraft store and recieved two different opinions from the sales guys, one good one average.
    I can't paste the link but I'm referring to Product Number: 123013. I thought this knife would be good for relief carving, and whittling because of it's versatility. The one thing I do respect about the sales people is they do give you an honest opinion regarding their product and type of carving you are doing.

    I ended up buying a Rick Butz detail knife. I just wanted to know if anyone owns this knife or has an opinion on it.

    Thanks Ken

    Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

    The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

    WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.

    You tube is a real blessing when it comes to learning new stuff. I have watched one that compared the flux core and gas mig weld. If I remember correctly polarity comes into play. The flux core weld was really nice. Have fun.
    I was told by the cardiologist that I am not allowed to weld because...
