    We've got a couple lookers right there!

    So here's a question, are you feeling out your preferences for filework? I mean, is there one style you're leaning towards as a "go to" style, or do you expect to just keep trying new things with each new piece?

    Thanks David.

    Hadn’t really thought about it yet...there are some filework styles that I really like, but for now...just trying new stuff. :)

    ETA:I’d like to hone the filework craft...I actually did all the filework over a year ago before things got HT...so back then, I tried a few different patterns.

    Don't get me wrong Coleman - 5 for 5 - but I've learned that I can't have them all, so I specialize :D

    Five Thistles all lined up, all with their own uniqueness. One to go, and then on to sheaths...

    Just finding the time to finish up the last one and move on to sheaths has proved to be a challenge. With work being busy and at all times of the day and night, plus fishing season and hunting season....oh man...

    fingers crossed I get some time soon.
