    Please post some pics when you are finished. I'd rep you, but I'm out.

    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.

    I've been busy as heck building knives. This holiday season has been especially hectic. Here is a small sample of some the work I do in my shop.I already had most of the tools, except for a few. I built a propane forge a few years back and bought a knife grinder. I normalize, heat treat and temper all my blades. I stabilize my wood scales and make my own micata and mosaic pins. This is my new passion. That has been one of the reasons I haven't been posting. I hope you all are well and have a blessed Christmass.

"We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors…and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."-Karl Rove (Source)
