Those are so nice. Favorite bolster stamp (other than “TC” ;))

Some beautiful knives being posted here. This is a cheapy that i picked-up for a really good price. It is a solid piece but the Rosewood was very bland and i thought i could improve it and do better.:rolleyes:. I applied 10 really thin coats ot Tru-Oil, and the difference is amazing, does not show up in photos very well, but you can see all the character in the grain. Have a good week.:).
