May it go well for you. It seems like a frustrating but ultimately rewarding hobby.

Ordered a couple chunks of briar from VT Freehand yesterday.

I'm pretty excited.
If your first one is better than my 10th one, much like JoeGoat's was, I will be peeved. But have fun.

Weight loss class orientation is tonight, and my wife has a peanut butter cookie stashed in her purse. Recognizing prime bribery opportunity when I see it, I asked her "what's it worth to you for me not to tell?".

On the surface, this is a great idea. But the marriage blade has two edges and the garage is cold. Good luck.

I dry shaved some of my face with one of my pocketknives around midnight last night. All of my blades are shaving sharp.

That doesn't seem at all insane.

Haven't you ever trimmed your beard line?

Indeed. I have also shaved my face. I keep my razors shaving sharp. :D

My knives I carry are razor sharp, scalpel sharp. How is a gentlemans sharp pocketknife any different than a razor meant for shaving if both are equally sharp?

Well, there's the question of steel, of course, and whether the edge can take the abuse more than once. Cut throat razors are actually pretty advanced metallurgically speaking. Fun to hone, too. Good for those frenulum hairs double-edged razors like to leave behind.

Not that Im the model of a modern gentleman, of course, but I have always tested the blades on my forearm hairs. Precludes the possibility of a several inch long self inflicted facial wound.

Go nuts, of course. It's your face.

Lunting at the Highlanders Festival at Radford College sounds like a good idea this morning.

I bought some pen making supplies today. Not that I've actually been in my shop in months to actually make something. But I have the parts now.

Made my first one this morning. Much easier than pipe making!

I think there are a few more pen turners on CPS. You guys should arrange a PITH swap.
