Hmmm from £75 to £100 depending on the wood and pattern or more if ya want more complex knotwork, that doesnt include the belt because that one I've made tbh isnt that fantastic.

agreed... though after reading Jake's tutorial on carving, I've an idea how it's done.

One thing though... did you use a wood burning tool to make the marks?

No the wood was carved then I rubbed a darker wax into the wood which gathered in the receses the carving left, personally I prefer it to burning because A it protects the wood B if it ever gets rained on the wax in the creveses will repel the water rather than making it more likely for water to gather in the carved areas and cause problems and C its faster and easier than burning lol, I always seem to burn meself when I use a burner.
