Finally got around to trying this, as a handle for bottle openers I think.

Hardest part was getting the reground brick chisel to bite deeply enough into the square stock, have to work hotter next time. Made a quick holdfast for the pritchel hole out of 1/2 stock to hold the bar down while incising the lines. The weighted chain over the anvil wasn't doing the job.

The lovely wife and kid thought it was braided, I guess that's good.

Brick chisel is pretty wide. Easier to go deep with a narrower chisel.

Looks good. My chisel for this sort of thing is about an inch wide with a curved edge (the ends curve up, it's still makes a straight line.) so it can be walked along the groove. Not only is it easier to drive the small area, but if your line gets a little off you can correct it.
