    Alright all you Bladeforumites out there! I am most pleased to announce that I've taken the plunge and gotten a hosted maker's forum here, at Bladeforums, the BEST knife forums on the internet. I look forward to sharing talk and pics about my work, knives in general and whatever else with you, here. I am honored to share these sub-forums with my fellow knifemakers, a highly talented and generous bunch of folks.

    Thank you in advance for dropping in- I will be posting pics and creating stickies later this evening.:D

    I brought some in here since it seemed to be the busiest thread so far. Help yourself, the coffee is Earth Wind and Fire blend from a french press and the donuts have a preponderance of bismarcks, jelly, and old-fashioned. Or, if you prefer "break-room style" coffee there is also a large industrial drip coffee machine and some styro cups in the corner. Don't want to get too pretentious.

    It's almost 1:00 PM, so yes. Smoke 'em if you got 'em, too. After all, the ventilation in here is killer. I'll even tell the first lie: I'm getting a lot done today!

    Morning. Looks like I can get a few hours in the shop this morning before work. I have to do a bit of finish sanding on a Facón Criollo inspired piece I'm doing, then cut and fit the guard. Going to have a walrus ivory handle too.

    Morning. Since my neighbors moved out last week (to Oregon) its been great that I can turn the tunes up really loud in the morning! Today its some Atmosphere, Sol.Illaquists of Sound, and Sage Francis on the turntable. Captain Crunch for the boy and a coddled egg and toast wth coffee for me. Been riding the bike to work for the last month now and the extra protein and light breakfast sure has helped.

    Have a good Saturday!
