• Spring cleaning sale: I've reduced prices on the BladeForums.com Logo Tshirts and PVC patches to move these out of here! We're down to sizes Large & XL on the shirts, but have plenty of every colorway left on the patches. Get them before they are gone! https://www.bladeforums.com/help/bfcmerch/
  • The search engine is not working correctly. We are aware of the problem and are working on a solution. Thank you for your patience.
  • I've implemented new password tools to try and cut down on the number of people getting their profiles compromised by reusing the same passwords that they have used elsewhere. If you are using a password that has been exposed in a data breach and is listed on haveibeenpwned.com you will get a notification to change it the next time you log in. When you choose a new password it will show you the strength; you will need a "Medium" strength or higher password for here, 8 characters or more in length.

    Thanks for your support!

Branson Hammer-In / Show

Jan 10, 2007
I recently had the opportunity to run a table for the ABS at the Branson Hammer-In/Knife Show.

It was a great time! The show is a lot of fun with demonstrations running all day both days.

Jerry Lairson giving a satin blade finish demonstration.

Jim Crowell forging a knife.

Brion Tomberlin giving a hamon tutorial

Plus, there is a cutting competition which is always a lot of fun.

Even the Steel Barron himself made an appearance!
