It’s Been Awhile
« on: June 09, 2019, 06:34:12 PM »
Hey guys, it’s been ages since I’ve posted here, and I do apologize for that. I’ve been working loads of OT at work, bought a house on a bit of land away from town, continued all 82 of my hobbies, and just generally been covered up. Anyway, I wanted to say ‘howdy’ to all y’all and share some of my recent knives that I’ve made and am working on.

The pink one was supposed to be a small hunting knife for myself, but my oldest daughter said it fit her hand “Like some kind of redneck Cinderella”, and so I couldn’t possibly keep it for myself after that lol.

The last small blade I forged from a 1” diameter ball bearing to see what I could get out of a small piece of steel.

Nice work at the forge! Maybe you should change your nick to Forgeguy? ::thinking::

Welcome back!  ::beertoast::
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."
