Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I've been standing on the crossroads for a while and my dumbass has finally realized that every direction leads to Redmeadow Knives. Been on the fence about moving forward for too long. I could write a really boring book about everything that's been involved in that realization and what caused my recent stagnation, but that doesn't get us more cowbell. What does get us more cowbell is letting you guys know what direction we're going and what to expect. Knifemaking has always given me an intense creative outlet. I'm going to be spending more time focusing on that creativity. The drawback of that is that I won't be taking custom orders, but there will always be knives in the works and I'll always listen to requests. We'll also be seeing more forged items. The goal here is a line of forged blades amongst other items. I'll be documenting my learning process and the fails involved. I'll be doing some polls and asking for your guys opinions on what kind of Redmeadow gear you want to see. Shirts, mugs, stickers? I'll continue to post content on Instagram and YouTube and make every effort to cross post it here, let me know what you want to see more of and I'll do what I can. In case anyone is wondering, I'll always offer items for sale here first. @RayseM you have the patience of Job, thanks for that. To those that have dibs on the M1's, and to all of the Clan of the Cowbell, you guys are awesome, thanks. On a side note- 'The Makers Group' is a side project that myself and @Knife1987 started last year. There's an Instagram account with 2K followers, over 800 of which are Makers, a YouTube Channel that has categorized Playlists on Knifemaking, Blacksmithing, Leatherwork and things like 'Shop Tips'. There's also a private Facebook Group that's for Makers only. The idea behind the whole thing is to get Makers working together and supporting each other instead of chasing their tails. Let me know if you have any questions.
