Starting on my Metal Stamps

I toured up to my studio and spent only 5 minutes on playing with the new stamp tools

I took one of the pieces - the ends are pretty rough - the piece was cut at the metal supply place

rough and sharp 
 to quickly clean the edges I used my grinder
cleaned up fast on the grinder 
hardly had to to do any work - ground it flat on top - then angled the sides so that it was  more pointed -  now its in my vice - note \i am using some foredome foam edged so they dont dig into the metal so I can go to the next stage -   
I need to find my fine tip sharpie so I can draw the design - ( I want to do a flower ) 
but that may not happen till next week -
