    Thank you. It definitely helps to have encouragement after the frustration today. I still enjoyed the work and learned lessons but...dammit LOL. I wanted handle scales.
    In my experience when I get frustrated I’ve learned to walk away that day, for some unexplainable reason when I come back I usually knock it out quickly and with no issues. Just can’t win for losing some days.

    My biggest mistake was not quitting when I was tired. And I wound up grinding a contour off the handle scales that I shouldn't have...because I forgot which end was the pommel and which was the blade end. Today also drove home the fact that I seriously need a small band saw/scroll saw. Next knife I sell will probably buy me one.
