Shanker Jr.

With 3 kids in the family,
it's interesting to see how each 
has different interests.
Jake loves watching YouTube,
learning how to build stuff.
He knows most of my secret stashes in the garage.
He spent hours whittling this knife 
out of a scrap of aluminum.
Yea aluminum,
a good prototype.
The handle cut from a scrap of phenolic,
glued and riveted,
then filed and sanded down.
Damn cool for a 13 year old!
Way to go Jakob Perich!
He had the blade filed sharp,
easily slicing through lemons and limes.
We'll wait and see for his next version.
He's asking for a new belt for the sander and better files!
