Haven't done anything yet, I am trying to be patient so I won't learn any bad habits so to speak.. It's Ulf Brandt that's holding the course by the way, he's a knifemaker from the town I live in. The course has been set for a later date tho, so you might have to wait some more for pictures, but I'll gladly post them.

The technique we will be using is simple, just a needle in a chuck and then doing every dot by hand. And I think we will be using fake ivory (elforyn) to scrimshaw on.

I will make the needle by small HSS metal drills, can't remember the diameter I bought, but I think it's 0,7mm or something like that.
