After seeing that piece, I'm thinking of trying it and incorporating a small oval piece into the lid of a wooden box. I've been working on making a nice walnut box to keep a pistol in and this would really set it off.

Put in there unloaded and that won't happen.

Hey fish, how far does the tang of the knife go down into the handle? How is it secured?

the blade goes within a half inch of the end,i filed some decent groves in it and then used gorrilla glue,its really quite sollid.

hard to say but I suspect gorilla glue is at least as good as red loctite but anyways here is red loctite:

That sounds like a good solid knife.

I did a re-handle job once on a knife and there was a special glue for doing the handle now that I think about it. But it seems like it was pretty much super glue like stuff. http://www.texasknife.com/vcom/index.php?cPath=223_41

Gorilla glue is great but I always manage to use a hair too much.

is that a RCH too much?

Read a report that said blonde was the smallest unit of measurement with brunette being next and red being the coarsest, but still, an RCH is pretty slight.

hard to believe - an RCH has been the standard for engineering measurement units for a long fucking time

This study was apparently done by someone with too much free time at work, like maybe Ray. :albertein

....and he would have access to the needed specimens, ie, BCH, BrCH and RCH.

Considering that shit foams out and dries up red, why yes. Yes it is.
