Not a problem, my pleasure. You're right, it dosen't get any better; a nice knife and a happy customer are my top goals and it looks like I met them both and showed a few others what to expect, should they tear one apart at the same time. I really enjoyed putting this tutorial together and I hope it has answered some questions. If there are some that it hasn't answered, just ask my friends. :)

This is one heck of a fantastic tutorial of not only the process in general, but of your craftsmanship as well. Thanks so much for taking the time and effort to bring this entire project to light for us less than competent knife guys.

Being the type to dive into things, I can tell it won't be long till I take an old knife I'm not too concerned about ruining and give it a try.

Again, thanks. ::tu::

Hey Muskrat Man,
I've got to say you do really good work! I've been looking at the tutorial
on the Case hawkbill you put the maple handles on. And I was just wondering
how high do you leave the scales, or I guess I should say how thick do you
leave them to allow for final sanding down so they come out flush with the
bolsters? I'm dying to try me a project but I'm trying to get my ducks in a
row before I start. I've really found out a lot just by listening to the folks in this forum and looking at the tutorials ya'll have been nice enough to take the time to share with us. It's always nice when someone with knowledge of
a subject is willing to share what he knows with others wanting to learn.
