**Apologize in advance for the "Wall Of Text" **

Why We Formed "Edge Out Project" Relay Team:

Almost all of us have been touched by cancer in some way, so we've decided to make a difference by walking and raising money in the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event. Brian Goode a fellow knife maker from North Carolina and some friends of his started the Project a few years back.

At the event, our team will camp out overnight and take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society in the world's largest fight against cancer.

I have the Heat Treat and Temper cycles finished up.... Just waiting on some new belts to be delivered before I do the final Grind. I see what appears to be a BEAUTIFUL Hamon under there!

I made some more progress on the Raffle Knife...

Machine finished and Hand sanded today, also got my logo etched on one side. I need to order a good Lorien Design Logo for the other side. Luckily Ernie is QUICK!

Blade is looking great Ryan!

I don't think about it often, but I'm a "cancer survivor" myself - glad to say I've been happy and healthy (fitness level varies according to beer intake, but then again so does happiness ;) ) since '96.. So, I dropped some funds in the pot to round it out for now - good luck on your goal, I'll be keeping an eye on it until June!

Cheers,
Shane

Ryan - meh, I rarely give it a second thought. I was lucky and caught it very early and I was young and otherwise healthy. The only thing NOT going for me was I had just happened to turn down student health insurance for the semester, because hey I was all of the above (plus dumb) and needed beer money :eek::D. So, I ended up with some medical bills - but also received some charitable financial aid. So, it's my pleasure if I can give back in a small way.

I'll most likely drop some more funds along the way as you work toward the goal - but bumping the total today to $500 seemed like a nice round number :)

I will most certainly take you up on the beers and will insist on returning same!

Received the Donated Silver Twill (Thank you CompositeCraft Inc) in the mail yesterday and had a chance to cut the pieces and will be gluing them up today. Should have a finished blade by the weekend! Then off to David Brown for the Kydex sheath.
