Welcome aboard asterisk, glad to have you. Nice set, did you fry or grill your friend? 

I agree with putting the bottle opener on the spatula, it prevents folk who've been imbibing from waving the fork around trying to open their . . . ?th. beer.

I made this one for my wife as a slightly belated birthday present. I don’t know if I would call it brave or stupid, but  may have engraved a certain number into the handle. Being very witty she flipped it around and said it was cool I engraved the initials for the State it was made in.

Asterisck, Blasted tiny phone! I had to look for a second before I saw the opener on the end of the spatula. Nice work.

Billings and Spencer tool company has a pretty cool history. The founder got his skills for drop forging from the Colt firearms company. 

Pretty cool Gazz, i am also glad you left the open end with the logo. I love tools. The Snap-on and MAC truck are like shoes store to women for me. (yeah like i am the only one here)

After calling the mom for mother's day, I had a bit of time to practice my birds. Tried making it so the beak opened the bottle, and it does, but I found the legs and tail grab the bottle cap way better, and it sits in top of the bottle.

Yes, it does need to be straighter, and more symmetrical. But Its alot better than my first bird. 431133998_IMG_20190427_1303242882.thumb.jpg.b40824581c5c3ac8c72e2c2ef00ee871.jpg

What grade stainless?

I made a steak turner out of ss (dont know what type) but it seemed like mild steel to forge. 

Is it 450 as in yz450 or wr450, ? the only sensible choices....

I think I’m going to make one of these as warm up for each session.

Ooh I like em. I like the way you've turned the second loop and really like the texture in the top one.
