It's a good thing that I am retired, I told my wife that if I had discovered building knives earlier in my life, that is what I would have done for a living. There is something primal about the whole process. Once you get the knife building bug, there is no cure. I remember one episode of "Forged in Fire" where one of the Smiths said, "I don't need to build knives, I have to". That about sums it up. I look forward to hearing about your progress when you get started Presence.
Yesterday, I spent the day making Micarta and mosaic pins. With the holiday rush, I didn't have a lot of time to do the peripheral stuff and was getting pretty low on stock. Caught up now.
