This holiday season has been an interesting time for me in more ways than I could begin to go into. But members here on the Traditionals sub-forum have had an influence. From Carl's stories to the things I've learned here and the fine knives I've been turned on to. Reflecting on everything, looking at new acquisitions, and reading some of Carl's writing, I felt I needed to put something down myself. I don't claim to be a story teller or a writer by any means, but here's what came out.
I have noticed in my travels all across this great continent of North America that everything is the same, but different in small, fairly insignificant ways.
In most urban locales, distance can be measured in Wendys or Taco Bells. "Go down this road to the second Taco Bell, then turn right. Follow that road to the CVS, and turn left, toward the Wendys. You'll pass the KFC. There is a WalMart on the right side just before your destination".
Anywhere I go,

Well, I feel that a need for a daily/weekly journal is an appropriate necessity with my works now, as more and more knives are being made. Most people on BF only get to see what is being posted on the site, and not everything that's being made on a daily basis. So I figured why not show everyone who wants to check it out, a mix of past to present, along with some of my WIP's to boot.
Finally placing an order for my custom Bluephin Flipper! After some emails and great comversations with Po I decided on the details of my Bluephin! Im going with 3.5in blade with his custom grind, copper bolster,carbon fiber handle scales, copper backspacer, and a custom copper clip! Check back in 6 months for pics!!
