Nice little knife that, Steven.

I bought some steel (can't remember the grade but it was recommended) and was going to make a little MapGas forge to do some knife making. Problem is that my workshop is in "Wood and Motorcycle mode" at the moment so sparks from hammering and grinding wouldn't be good with all the fine sawdust, and petrol fumes.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Thanks Dave
