What did you do in the shop today?

So, the espresso has the caffeine, and the tabasco has the flavor. It basically gives you an adrenaline boost. And, it tastes awful enough that it makes you think about how stupid you are, not what's going on externally.

Absolutely. And while it is probably TMI, yes, the bowel movements give you a new bad day. It's just awful sounding all around, but it actually does help on the very very very worst days.

Wings sound mighty good!  Might have to fire up the smoker today.  I personally like them smoked, then seared the last few minutes to crisp. 

Not today but I finished up my first ever attempt at:

1. Damascus, 1084 and 15n20 27 layers

2. Integral

3.  fitting a guard ( not really a guard, just a decorative layer really).

Learned a lot on this build.  Failed at hand fitting the guard slot in the dragon skin damascus, tried to file way to much material inbetween fitting.  Second attempt was a lot better.  Scale is stabilized, dyed redwood with desert ironwood.  My kids have already claimed this as theirs as it is perfect for them to slice up apples and cheese.

I think the word you want is "bolster".

Integral tang?  Hidden tang perhaps?

From A.G.Russel's site: An Integral fixed blade is one made of all one billet of steel. This means that the blade, bolsters, tang, and pommel are all made out of one single piece of steel.

What's the grate made from? 

Around a 1/8"-3/16" round plate with holes drilled in it. On the new ones I'm making it is atleast 1/4". I just make 4 tack welds around it to hold it in place. That way it's easier to fit free if it needs replaced.

Nope. Couldn't obtain any unobtanium and the government keeps denying they have any adamantium and keep telling me that it was just a comic book fantasy.

I’ve been working on a NADC (Naturally Aspirated Dilithium Crystal) forge, but I’m having trouble sourcing parts for the antimatter inducer.

I'm still trying to reach 1.21 gigawatts to power my flux capacitor Induction forge if I ever do get some unobtanium and adamantium. I'd love to forge some damascus from that. If only someone knew where the lightning might strike and when.
