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:

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...
