    You need to give one a try! I have couple of bones blades I've handled with slightly less of an extreme handle but the same blade shape which would be a good compromise for those who want a more 'standard' handle shape.

    I use a mixture of both. Most of my fitting materials come from the States so are imperial. e.g. for a thin walled 5/16" thong tube I use 8.1mm drill, for 1/4" tube I use 6.5mm. I use the available counter-bores for the 5/16" and 1/4" Loveless and Corby…

    So I have a lot of kitchen worktop that I'm stripping out at work - of course I've earmarked it to re-do my workshop and have a good sort out in there.

    Yeah, not sharp edged in fairness but if using for a while it can be uncomfy. I must admit I have the same thought with my ukpk and had on the list for years the idea to make some heavily contoured green Micarta scales. The most comfortable spydie I've…
