    Do you get the horn in sheet form? It'd be nice to have a set of horn cards for tablet weaving! Love the tags you've made, they are really good!

    That is outstanding!!! :):lmao:

    It's not just your common or garden SAK anymore, that has added a definite touch of class.

    Well done.

    A finger, a thumb, an arm, a leg, a nod of the head... it's easy!!

    Easy?? I've just listed what I'd lose were I to try that.

    I'm okay with power tools - as long as it's elbow power. I had a go on a foot pedal Singer sewing machine years ago, my mother was a Seamstress, if she hadn't unpicked the stitches only a mitten would fit my left hand.

    There are folks with ingrowing toenails that could do with your services. Maybe it's time you dipped your toe in the water and got an office in Harley Street...

    About 30 years ago, an old pal of my Grandfathers (God Bless him) used to do Scrimshaw and he made it look so easy.

    I tried making a wee model of the Kon-Tiki raft from balsa wood. I'm sure the Guiness book of records would credit me with the biggest collection of purpose built splinters.

    My Gran (God Bless her too) was heartfelt in her thanks for the toothpicks that yon "raft" provided. Toothpicks were for the posh in them days.

    To her dying day I never told her I was trying to make a wee raft.

    No Cap'n, Credit where it's due mate. :D

    Greetings Cap'n
    I have long been admiring these neckies from afar, and my desire for one has become so great that I've made the short trip across from BB to see if you would kindly make me one.

    I'd like one featuring my favourite quarry, the brown trout. If possible, I'd like to leave the actual design to you. If it's inconvenient that way, let me know and I'll try to find a design.

    If this is all OK with you, please contact me with payment details either here or at British Blades (where I go by the same moniker)

    Many thanks and good wishes.

    If that pendant wasn't mine, I'd be very jealous of the owner. But it's mine! I'll treasure it and enjoy it.

    PP gratefully sent, thanks and best wishes to you Cap'n.
