Thanks a lot really appreciate it. Yeah i've made a few other things some pipes and jewelry. But i've got a few more different kinds of stone that
would be good for knife handles. I've looked into getting some hunting knife blanks and there's a guy I was thinking of getting in touch with that
forges custom knife blades and such.
The only thing about this kinda stuff is I have to find time at work to do some of it. I have some hand tools and some small power tools. But for
stuff like onyx and harder stones I need to use the diamond saws and air polishers and grinders at work. Sadly stonework is an expensive hobby even
using scrap material from work. Soapstone and alabaster are pretty easy to do by hand. But anything else you need power tools.
