Ugh ugh. Grug hit hot steel with heavy hammer many times. Grug make sharp pointy knife out of hot steel. Grug carve pretty flower and leaves on sharp pointy knife. Why Grug do that for? Knifes are tools. Knifes are not to be pretty. Maybe Grug are evolving? Maybe Grug change name to Darcy. Sound much more high class than Grug. Next Grug make pretty sheath for pretty knife.

You done good Grug, for a Canadian Neanderthal at least. [Wink]

Wow. Just looking over this again. I'm blown away how close to perfect you elite makers can build. Again, really beautiful Darcy.

You are too kind. I thank you, but I don't consider myself to be in the elite category.
Appreciate the kind words though.
