There is an excellent smith not too far from you, Jay Burnham Kidwell, I don't have his info handy, but you should be able to google him, I took a class with him, and he is just fantastic!!

When the metal speaks to you, the learning has begun.

There used to be a smith in Yerrick(sp?) east of Reno but I met him in the early 90's. He may still be there though.

Thanks Frosty

If you mean Yerington, which is south east of Reno. That is only about 370 miles north of me. It might have to be a weekend thing.

Thanks for the reply

Yes, That's the place! What's my memory coming to? Stupid TREES!

I just hope he's still in business, I had an enjoyable time talking to him back when.

He earns whate'er he can,
And looks the whole world in the face,
For he owes not any man.
