    I figured these would be offered as a “set” to complement the K18. I mean they are birthed from the K18 sheets. ;)

    Swords and daggers...like bread and butter. Or is it pistols and daggers now?

    Thanks for the reply.
    Are you saying you dyed the scales green, or you started with green and dyed them black??
    Any report on permanence?
    Would love to see your result if you have a shot of them.

    The dagger project of mine happened to fit into a drop from the sword production, but there are far fewer daggers than there are swords. It's kind of like a "fun Friday" thing that got a little out of hand.

    Hey man, it’s your scrap. I was just waxing selfish. :) These will vaporize like a summer rain on Florida asphalt.

    Another idea: let us stop by the shop and throw Lorien’s dagger. Cold. 1 shot. If you stick the target you get a shot at buying.

    Any chance we could have a pre-order that gets a little out of hand? Wooden-handled, satin-finished boot daggers would be nice, jus sayin

    ETA: +1 for the K18-Dagger add-on option..

    Yeah, a lottery would be pretty cool if these will be that limited. A Fun Friday sale would tear a hole in the space-time continuum I'm afraid. :eek:

    Guessing from the pic there's around 40 daggers, if that's all of them. That's enough, right? RIGHT???:eek:

    A while ago I used the stove top method to RIT dye canvas and linen micarta in black.

    I also did the complete RIT fixative.

    They worked out perfectly. The fixative prevented any colour from coming out of the scales and transferring to hands etc.

    The logical progression was to TT. The downside after talking to Nathan about it, the heat used in the stove top method may cause delamination between the micarta and TT.

    So before I go and dye all my TT I wanted to do a test batch.

    The thing is I never ended up with an extra set of TT that may be ruined.

    I still have all my stainless stuff and the materials to do it. I just need the scales.
