Good Morning!  Just signed up less than an hour ago. I'm retired army with 27 years of service.  Yes a Vietnam veteran with two tours their and I would do it again.  My wife and I live in northwest Missouri where I spend my spare time making knives (stock reduction but I might want to learn at least some rudimentary forging skills.)  I was led to your forum because I was seeking some info on anvils since I am about to go to an auction Saturday of an old blacksmith shop where the sale bill lists 7 anvils, Peter Wright and Wilkerson.  Your forum has already been helpful on that!

Welcome! We'd love to see pictures, both of your current knives and of those you forwasge as things progress.

Well here's a picture of my most recent knife - the ribbon is from a small local arts and crafts show - ergo not a big deal but I was pleased.  The steel is 1084 and the handle is from a piece of Buckeye Burl.  Nice stuff!

Always love to see pictures, do you have any photos or details on the anvils that will be available.
