    Hello dear friends.
    It is with great pleasure that I share with you Joe Keeslar Award for best knife submitted by an applicant for the Journeyman Smith Rating, the determined by the American Bladesmith Society review panel.
    This is the same award that was called George Peck. By decision of the ABS board members, they changed the name because the current generation did not know the great ABS collaborator George Peck. This took the meaning of the award. So the award starting this year, has the name Master Smith Joe Keeslar.
    This is the most important moment of my career.
    We had 17 candidates for Journeyman Smith and my knife was selected among 85 knives.
    See some pictures below.
    I invite all of you to click on my website link. In it you can see dozens of photos of the Blade Show in 2016, and many of my works.

    I would like to thank a lot to Mr. Jerry Fisk MS and Mr. Ryan Hays who kindly looked at my knives on the test day before. Thank you very much.
    Regards and God blesses.

    Congratulations Eduardo - wonderful knives! By the way, the buyer of your Keeslar award winner also took home one of my JS test knives when I got my stamp (the one in my avatar). He has very good taste! :D
