Well, now I do feel special. B) Okay, it's Monday morning so all you youngsters go out to work and build stuff or take your kids to school or whatever , while us retired guys chat it up a bit. It'll all be here for you when you get back. Don't worry there will be lots of dumb questions to amuse and pointed critiques and technical questions to entertain and enlighten. I'll see about ways to get more creative also. for example it occurs to me that now that we can hone our edges to a mirror polish, perhaps there is a way to inscribe fancy writing or designs in the little tiny edge shoulder that can only be seen with a microscope. I seem to recall seeing something somewhere where artists were writing and drawing on things like rice kernels for example. Lots of food for thought and it gives me something to do in between grits and knife sharpening in my spare time while I search for more gadgets and gizmos to buy.

I'm a bit interested in that ultra sonic bath thing a ma jigger I saw in another recent thread to clean my new stones. :cheer:

They laser inscribe diamonds with serial numbers. The number is legible with 10x scope.

Would work fine on an edge until you sharpen it once.

Inscribing you name on the spine might be more practical.

Maybe we could insribe the Constitution on the edge in micro script...
Nah, that would be more evidence of our OCD tendencies, and we'd nitpick the heck out of each other's hand writing skills....
