    This past weekend I had the opportunity to teach a student a little knifemaking/bladesmithing. A good time was had by all. Plus check out how well he did (Especially considering this weekend was his first time at the forge or grinder!)

    We only worked on blades. He took two blades home. One forged one stock removal. He was planning on doing a cord wrap on the other one so I wouldn't be surprised if that one is done.
