Hey Ed just wanted to let you know that over Christmas I bought the 3 pack of Tim's/ your sanding sticks. I gave 2 as gifts to knife maker buddies of mine and kept one for myself. I love the thing! Just finished the first blade sanded with it! While hand sanding is still not one of my favorite things on knife making to do this little gem helped quite a bit!! Hope things are going better for you. Prayers and thoughts your way!
