I have been a woodworker since youth, so I have some understanding and know my way around my tools and my hands, but I have always been fascinated with forge.
The masterful blacksmith Theo Rock Nazz (theorocknazz.com) has offered me apprenticeship, and I have begun work on my first knife in a series of 3 that should set the stage for my development. It is my goal to end 2014 having completed this series and enter 2015 with renewed prospects for projects.
I immediately fell into a deep work trance upon instruction, losing myself to unearthing the object within the mild steel I've been grinding. I've still got a lot more work to do - my measurements and such - but since I'm using an individual file and not an angle-grinder, I'll develop a better feel for what I'm doing.
Thoughts? Any comments are appreciated.
