    This past Thursday I took the ABS J.S. performance test under the supervision of Master Smith Lin Rhea. I PASSED!

    This first video is of me cutting a 1'' hanging manila rope:


    In this Video I am cutting through one of the two required 2x4's.


    In this last video I am bending the 90 degrees.

    What I have to do now is take five knives to be judged by a panel of Master Bladesmiths at the Blade Show in Atlanta.

    And no this one wasn't yours. But I guess I could bend yours if you would like...
