28 craftsmen couldn't mount an opinel in antler.
It was a question rather than a statement.

To clarify i estimate / project manage for a building contractor. Their skilled labor-joiners, masons, decorators etc etc are reffed to as "craftsmen" for charge out rates.

what do you carve them with griff? a dremmel type thing or one of them proper carving machine things? (been thinking of getting one of them for while lol)

Yes that type of thing, think it is called a "rotozip" i use for roughing it out and a smaller no name 12v engraver for the detail. Use carbide burs in both. A small sharp wood chisel for fine detail.

Stunning workmanship. It's a funny old world: people will happily pay £200 for a special night out, yet crib at paying a master craftsman for the hours he has spent creating a unique and beautiful ... and useful ... item.

Tell you what mate. you make a small stainless blade non locking folder with an interesting  handle for £100 or so and I`ll buy the first one. No questions or haggles, I`ll take it just to get the ball rolling. Hows that for a deal ? you provide and I``ll pay.

 

You have the talent and I`ll have the cash.

Opinel do stainless blades. Do you class them as non lockers?
