I spent the day working on these
made from a real Paterson Squeegee, a couple of X-acto knives, a spatula (wife's not pleased), some paint & tape
Still needs to be weathered,
What do you guys think?

i was at a wedding in proper highland garb, and when the cake cutting came around, no knife was to be found. i stepped up to the couple, pulled the sgian dubh from my sock, and the ceremony progressed.

why am i telling this story? because i got a vision of boba fett in the audience of a cooking show. they are making a cake, and have no spatula. boba fett walks up, hand them the spatula-tool, and walks away, never saying a word.

perhaps this will be less entertaining to me when i've gotten some sleep ;)

I just found out I made the ESB anti-security blade.
Not the ROTJ one that I need:(
The ROTJ has a Red stripe (no biggie) & a longer blade (biggie)
*thanx to lonepigeon for the ref pic*

That part is in the pocket anyway, so who will ever know but you?

at the risk of sounding cliche, I would know.:lol:

besides, the longer spatula blade makes the tool stick out of the pocket more.
I'll have to install them & see how it looks.

Can it be modified to be the ROTJ one? Or is that impossible? If you have to start from scratch, I'll gladly buy that one from you,:) so you dont take a loss.

slave1,

awesome job. just wondering where you got your paterson. I know places online that sell them, but i'm just wondering if you lucked out and found something local or got a deal on it somewhere. if you could PM that'd be cool.

again, nice work and glad to see the "scratch build" photos.
