    It's tough winding down after a long day, you have been making some great looking knives to show for it though!

    I'm up early, dentist appointment later then I have to go pick up my drums, my band is changing practice spaces. Hopefully I'll have some time to work on knives later today!

    I also have that talent! :D I'm currently working on a new steel wool ball myself, I have let it get about 4" from the top of my 5 gal spark bucket. I don't have to reach so far down in it when I drop a knife! It is scary though... very scary.

    It did come out pretty darn good! I have that and a Belgian Dark Strong Ale that is around 11% aging for when I want one. The Belgian one is like Chimay Red, I even made my own candy sugar for that batch. mmmm Beer.

    Cool, I'm not close but funny enough I know a guy who lives in sight of Pikes Peak as well. They have great gem and rock collecting up there, that's my other hobby. We should meet up! I'll bring the beer!

    Hey Daniel just thought I would stop in and check out your new forum. First off a big THAK YOU for participating in the mini KITH, you have really done well.

    You make some nice looking blades, I may have to grab one from ya if I ever get off unemployment soon. The upside is all the work I have been able to get done on my knife, not to mention beer drinking! Personally I prefer imperial IPA's but I like porters, stout, belgian blond (Duvel is the best), and true heff's with no fruit needed. Never tried brewing my own, but would love to someday.

    Ill be sure to stop by often.

    Hey Thanks Xander! You have been doing some really nice work, thanks for the compliments!

    I think I over-ipa'd last summer lol but I love all good beer. Lately I have been into the local amber beers, we have a great scene here in southwest CO with the brewing.

    Stop by anytime! :D

    O.E. 800 in the parking lot.

    Where are the paper bags at? I used to hang out in the hood down in Texas and those dudes liked to drink red bull (back then that was Schlitz Malt Liquor not the energy drink) on ice in tiny cups and split a 40 like 10 ways... we would throw in whatever change we had and hang out.
