    A while ago, Steve Corcoran made me some beautiful pistol stocks from some American black valnut. 
    When he cut out the stocks, I saw from the pictures he sent me that there were a space between two of the peaces, and I asked if he could put that leftover in the shipment. No problem he said. 
    Well, last week I did the measurements, and saw that I could get 10 desent knifeshafts out of it. 
    And a week later the job is done.

    Thanks!
    Strever, my English isn’t the best, but what do you mean about file work. Do you mean the sanding process?

    Thanks Osprey. Making knives is just a hobby, but now and then I sell some in the norwegian market. Christmas markets and so on. Just for fun – and to meet other knife makers.

    “Grin_Reaver”Beautiful stocks and knives. Did you oil the knife handles?

    
Yes. A mix with benar, terpentin and linolje. The herding process will take a couple of weeks, than polishing, and tke knives are ready.

    Don’t give me too much credit Strever. Much more talented blacksmiths than me are doing the metal work. I am just doing the wood work- the easy part so to say. ?
