    I found an old fork from a year back that I gave up on. It was a good shape but I improved it a hundred percent and now it is my favorite. Heres some pics!<br><img src="http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj310/sean0119/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_2987.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj310/sean0119/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_8366.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj310/sean0119/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_8121.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    i love the way it looks. like a cow pattern or something. are you planning on re-painting it? i think its cool the way it is.

    I thought about repainting it but thought the same thing about the pattern! The painted and unpainted surface gives contrast, shows off the shape and also helps in grip. I put a couple coats of Danish oil today. The black parts were sealed with glue and wax after I sanded it.
