I was speaking about you...I can't figure out why someone who, by his own admission, has never had a stitch prick or a fudge wheel in his hand.

Your comments about English work or even fudge work aren't exactly balanced either. And, more importantly, since you've never done any of the physical work, yourself...probably as im
modest as it gets.
Looking back, my observations about fudge wheels in general, esp. in comparison to stitch pricks, probably weren't balanced. And I apologize to others in this thread and to any Japanese maker who may have been offended, for that.
However, my comments/observations were about technique and the differences in results...they weren't aimed at anyone in particular--as your comments were
. I won't apologize for defending myself.
