    This is going to be a little experiment - I'm not sure how well it'll work but I figure it's worth a try!

    For some time I've been pretty bad at posting pictures of any work I do. I just found that sorting out taking, hosting then uploading was a bit of a faff. Then I discovered Instagram and getting pictures up somewhere was a lot quicker and easier....snappier! The problem with that is then sharing it anywhere else.

    So my plan is to see if I can get those pictures up here. It might not be very text heavy nor is it going to be about just one project. If it sparks a conversation here then great but if folk just glide by and see something thats fine too.
    To start with I might jump back a bit to get some content in but then it'll be just as it happens.

    If you actually use Instagram and would rather just subscribe there then:

    A good summary of last years posts!

    So top row numbers 1 and 2 are an Enzo necker I handled in Carbon Fibre over thin orange G10 liners. I don't have a picture of it done and it's still waiting to be sheathed (and sold!)

    Top row number 3 is where I'm setting up to make two sheaths - one for a TRC and one for an Entrek (while watching a Lego film):

    The middle row 1 and bottom row 1 are a rehandling an EKA in Yew plus a new sheath:


    Middle row 2 is a rehandlng of a Habalis Bushtool in Australian Goldfield Burr. That picture shows how much the wood colour changed after soaking in Danish Oil, with the unoiled part to the left.

    Middle row number 3 is a James Wood blade that I had part handled some time ago, not liked the handle and then rediscovered. I started a bit of reshaping but it go put to the side aain so there is nothing more to show....yet.

    Bottom row 2 is a blade I won from Barmond . It's an RWL-34 blade and I have plans for the handling but can't find the bits. As it's one I'll be keeping for my own use I want to use some o my stash of handle materials that I don't want to sell - I have some Merino horn that I would like to try use but I can only find one side at the moment! If not that then I have various bits of Desert Ironwood or Yellow Mallee Burl that are candidates.

    Bottom row 3 is a picture of the wooden surfboard I made at the start of the year. I have detailed some more pictures on it's own page here: http://www.stewartjlight-knives.com/2017/12/wooden-surfboard-76-magic-carpet.html

    It's a lot easier getting the grease in before stitching....

    Should be sorted - I was still playing around with the best way to upload in the least faffy way. :D

    Good for you mate, some nice work, but mainly praise for getting the pics working. A forum needs it, and I had a right go at a member on BCUK for being lazy. Having talked him through, he can post pics now and is well happy.

    Yes, for a few (or so). They're pretty addictive. I know there are many haters but I love the simplicity and easy function.

    This one is for another Kiridashi KITH I'm running over on edgematters and I've decided to make it more complicated by having it as a friction folder - something I've had vaguely in my head for a while.
