That was James posting from Manu's laptop, just in case anyone was confused (I was for a second!)..

Since the second post is taking quite some time, maybe your "accidental" virtual rape has scared her off from forums indefinately... :(

Perhaps Matt can do some reconstructive surgery though. :wink:

Looks like James has decided to come out with the truth (see above).

Matt - it's a fair cop. I guess the excitement got me to me, one thing lead to another and I just couldn't help myself.

Oz - That looks sweet. The tibutou looks really nice on the handle :)

That looks sweet Oz! Your stuff looks better and better all the time. I want to see more of Fab's stuff as well because that bollock knife is lovely.
I also love the word stuff.

Tamboutou

Postby J Marwood » 10 Apr 2006 16:12

The wood on that handle is Tamboutou (or tambootie).

I had a quick google on it and found the following:

"This species occurs in the warmer parts of KwaZulu-Natal, Mpumalanga, Northern and North West Provinces as well as in central Africa. It is found in deciduous woodlands, often along watercourses in single-species stands. The flowers (which are either male or female) are borne on the same tree in lateral spikes. The fruit is a smooth capsule of three parts. This three-lobed capsule is a clue to family identification as it is characteristic of the family Euphorbiaceae. The bark is black or almost so, thick, rough, and neatly cracked into rectangular sections. The tree is widely known for its fine wood, its toxic properties, and its "jumping beans". The latex is acrid, raising skin blisters on those sensitive to it and causing severe pain and even loss of sight if it enters the eyes (the antidote is said to be cow's milk). The smoke of the burning wood may induce headaches. Parts of the tree are used medicinally and in magic. The seeds are frequently parasitised by the larvae of the moth Emporia melanobasis that, as they straighten themselves out within the seeds, cause them to jump as high as 300 mm into the air. "

Which explains the headache I had last night after drilling this stuff....

Manliness

Postby Angel S. » 10 Apr 2006 16:29

Oz & James seemed to be having a grand old time yesterday at the forge when I called to say hello. They said they were manly men doing manly things!! I said I wanted pictures.

I’ll be visiting the forge in May and while I was hoping to take a proper knife making class with Oz, it’ll have to wait. I’ll be happy to watch him work & take pics & maybe I’ll get to do manly things. Of course I dunno how manly I’ll be in pigtails & lip gloss but hey.
