    Last year a monthly hammer-in kicked off in Central Arkansas. It is held at 5:30pm on the last Thursday of each month at Craters and Freighters in North Little Rock. (A huge thanks to the Petty's for hosting!)

    It generally starts off with a little show and tell, seeing as how there are several talented makers who attend. Then we eat some delicious food! Maybe have a little meeting. Then take in a couple of demonstrations by some VERY talented makers.

    Here are a few snapshots from the meetings:

    Lin Rhea heat treating a couple of blades and braking them to show what is going on inside the steel of a properly treated knife and an overheated knife.

    Here is John Perry showing how he uses broaches to make make room for a knife's tang.
