    He's had to stop on the way, picking up a few bottles of that cheap red. Slurrrpppp!

    Maybe Ditchy can become the PW Vitner. We could have a weekly update on a red tipple.

    Who was that nettlesome woman who passed herself off a  wine aficionado , she used to be on the telly in late 80's early 90's? I can recall her being on Good moaning Britain occasionally. She used to be on some other food program, however the names elude me.

    Can't wait for this weeks project.

    Sounds like their savers saver range, who cares as long as it is quoffable.

    I have not bought a bottle of red for years, the hangovers even after 1-2 glasses used to be of  biblical proportion. I remember in the late 90's when I worked in coronary intensive care the cardiologists would have a weekly discussion about what red they were drinking. All evidence based of course, and it it added a new dimension at the end of the ward round.

    now to more serious matters...............

    i have gone back to the first prong and re-cut it as the ferrul was proud of the handle...so it has shortened it...and i have just cut the brass pommell for it ...which i will put up for you later...got to do some silver soldering first...then sink the lock pins with the pommell into epoxy in the handle base....i will leave that overnight to harden then grind and polish tomorrow..................

    Ah, every day is a learning day, thank you for enlightening me.

    Any roads the knife is coming along great, loving the handle, natures scrimshaw!

    im very tempted to do some scrimshaw.............but it will be taken from stone age cave paintings.........if i could somehow down load particular scenes and make a transfer....then i could trace it onto the handle and etch it out.............

    if someone could do that it might be worth a knife..........:hmm:
