    So, I've been kicking around the idea of making some pocket knives. I found a kit for a decent looking folding lockback knife here. My question is, has anyone made a knife like this before? It says skill level is III-V but I don't know what to compare that too. It seems like you would just...

    Chip carved plate, add color? I'm wondering what you think about my adding some color to this chip carved plate. From the start I'd planned on adding a light, transparent, oil-based green color to the leaves and red to the berries. But now that I've gotten this far in the finishing process, I...
