    A easy way of making any colour liner any thickness. Fiberglass resin. One drop of hardener per teaspoon of resin. Take cloth one or two for desired thickness. Sandwiched with fiberglass matt. I use the more expensive one as it gives a better finish. Soak it with resin and press flat between wax paper to dry

    That is a gorgeous looking knife. How many hours are put in that and how much invested time is needed before you can get to that level.

    That is giving it away!

    How many hours? I would guess at least 30 hrs.

    That equates to ħR50 /h - robbery!

    Yes if you think about it that way. But one first need to establish your name
    So jump now before reputation and demand drives prices
