    I love the copper bolster on that knife. So classy!

    Great work man.

    Waiting to finish my two knives. Need a bit more spacer material so the screws sit flush. Hoping to order them this week.

    Just doing stock removal at the moment. Don't really have space for a shop set up for an anvil.

    Debating getting a stake anvil if I can find a suitable stump to use as a base that I can then wheel in and out of the garage.

    May have to wait until I am back in a house where I can set up a shop in the back.

    Nothing wrong with stock removel

    Have you looked into a piece of railway track for a starter anvil? They go alright. If you were in Australia you could have my old one but I'm assuming your in the states?

    Yeah I'm in southern California. Railway track piece may be harder to find then dropping the $150ish for a stake anvil.
