yikes... apology accepted, and I didn't read close enough. As far as I know they could both show up though. As I recall Wal used things like very fine steel wool wrapped around toothpicks. T'were me,I'd avoid the steel wool since it has a nasty habit of breaking up and wedgeing itself in little crevices on "ordinary" handles, let alone the carved ones.... I'd use jeweler's files, then bits of fine sandpaper wound about them. For the perfectionist, maybe cotton doped with abrasive next. What a blast from the past--I still wonder how both are doing now. Beo did take great pix.
