  2. Hey Guest, after some debate, the staff of StP has decided to shut down the gallery section of the website. It's still online, but we will be closing it for good on April 14th, 2015. So if you have any pictures there you don't want deleted permanently, please make a backup before that date. Everyone is encouraged to post pictures in threads from here on, so keep those pictures coming!

    This looks like a pretty cheap and easy method to do this if you have the materials and equipment.

    Pretty cool. I have a small collection of pocket knives, etc (yeah I like them, always have something on me when I'm bicycling or hiking) - and a friend of mine has been experimenting with making knives with fancy wood handles - so I have a couple of them. Sent him the vid. Thanks!!!

    Yeah I thought this was really cool when I saw it. So much more could be done than just initials.
    Plenty of both practical and whimsical applications with this. Like etching a ruler along the spine of a filet knife or drawing out a whole picture across the blade of a large knife. A machete could be made to convey an entire story.
