  1. Thanks! I had a really good teacher guiding me.
  2. Just updated. Should be there now.
  3. I spent the first part of this week in North Carolina at Hoffman Blacksmithing learning how to make knives. It was a lot more work than I was expecting but I had a great time. Liam Hoffman makes some really nice knives and I am glad I was able to learn from him. It is nessmuk inspired. The handle is Brazilian cherry scales with copper pins. The blade is 1095 hi-carbon steel etched and hand sanded to 1000 grit with a hamon.
  4. Fire it up and let us know what you think. I am considering a Diamonback 2 burner Metalsmith.
  5. I neglected to look in on this thread but I would love to attend some time. I'll hit you up.
  6. Very nice. I like that a lot.
  7. I am going to take you up on that. Thinks are a bit crazy right now with the holidays coming up so it may be after the new year.
  8. Finished my introduction to blacksmith class at Kaviar Forge in Louisville last weekend and earlier today I picked up a Cliff Carroll 125lbs off of Craigslist. Should work well for banging on some metal on the weekends. Guy threw in the stand but I am going to build something more substantial. Next on the list is a good forge and vise and then I'll be in business.
  9. That is a beauty. Going to have to build one of those myself.
  10. That is beautiful. Hope to be able to do something like that one day.
  11. Glad to know I am not alone. Where abouts are you located?
  12. Thank you for the welcome and encouragement everyone. Sheltowee, thanks for the invite. After the class wraps up next month I will definitely take you up.
