The file work looks amazing. It really gives that blade a personal, custom touch. Your skills are amazing.

Thanks, I free handed this one last night and it's the first time I've done this pattern. I'm really pleased with the turn out.

Griffin...

Here are the blades I was referring to. I can get a TON of these. Just don't know if the gold color will come off.

PM me what you think...
