    Peter, The last time you saw the knife it was peened. At least I think it was.......

    I hope it was. It was "finished except for cleaning some epoxy." : ) Were the pins just for alignment and to add some "grip" with the epoxy?

    Dave, When Peter comes to my place he calls it "going to town". He's a real boondog.

    Peter, Yes the blind pins were more for placement of the pummel. I only use them when I think I'm going to be doing a lot of guessing as far as placement goes plus they also add more strength to the butt cap as I normally call it.

    Eric, I never tire hearing "that's a nice knife".

    I have to drive almost 15 miles just to get to the nearest Home Depot. Gotta go even farther for Lowe's. : )

    Ray, That's what I figured. Do you drill any holes in the butt cap usually? I'm talking like half way through from the back to give the epoxy some purchase. I can't remember if I used to do that or not, but I didn't do it on that knife I finished about a week ago and the butt cap came loose when I peened the tang. I drilled the one for the knife I'm working on now with a bunch of holes half way through so the epoxy will grip better.

    Peter, I have drilled holes in the past to help the epoxy stick better.

    That may just be my new favorite RR knife! So far I have around 18 favorite RR knives. You are a true master, Ray. And you ain't too bad of a leatherbender for a feller who hated it when I joined this circus.

    Thanks!

    Denny, I'm not sure about being called a master although I do work at what I think I'm pretty good at. I always do enjoy hearing from another old grunt...
