    Very good work. Love the fish. What are you using for thread?

    Thanks,

    Like the leather, it is from the scrap bin as well. It is Nyltex waxed synthetic thread from Tandy. It come waxed but I wax it again before I use it then run it through a piece of denim cloth to melt the wax in. The stuff I used for this is a ball I had for about 25 years. It is still as strong as the day I bought it.

    The tooling really gives a nice finished product too.

    That is a wonderful idea. The dollar store sells forks, and I'll get some to do that with.

    You got it right. A 1977 Grohmann #100 skinner.

    Speaking of stacked leather handles, I just got a commission tonight to make a katana with a stacked leather handle, custom tsuba and pommel.
