Not without fancy cryogenic treatment etc. I havn't used it but D2 is rust resistant and relatively easy to work with.

Thought it would be summat simular as only stainless ones I ever seen seem to be mass produced? I don’t think he got a forge or anything but I do know he got a power hamer an drill an sanders an stuff, so maybe I’ll reuse summat rather than start from scratch, have got some ole shears but I don’t think they gonna work maybe past there best😳 I’ll have a hint about an find some sort a blade or summat😂

Best blocks are maple ..

Or if you know a tree surgeon get them to save you a lump of sycamore .It was commonly used as butcher's blocks as it can be a b*gger to split when seasoned.

If world war three ever happens and civilisation has to start from scratch I'm going to live next door to griff ... his family could build a town from scratch I reckon ... bloody talented family fair play ......

I reckon if you gave Griff a jam jar and a piece of string he could make a nuclear reactor

Hi guys.  Somehow I know you know I've been a bit quiet. My best friend, brother Ian died suddenly of some so of heart problem. As regards this thread, I have been tasked with sorting out his belongings which is a major headache. Ian lived near Melrose in the Scottish Borders and was a well known plasterer, rough caster, tiler, just the kind of guy you'd want to know. I started on all his building belongings and soon realised that things were bigger then I thought. 3 Lorry loads of scaffolding, three skips so scrap metal, three skips of general throw away and still not sorted out vehicles and personal registrations. When I read the comments, particularly from Griff, I realise the value of 'stuff' that we collect and wonder where and when they might come in handy! I've a Landrover, Defender, a beautiful multi purpose mini digger, oh the list is endless and I'm getting maudlin. Good night guys. Crying again. Jok.
