    Hey guys, Grizz from Edmonton here.

    Some of you might know me as the cantankerous pot-stirrer from CGN, GOC and maybe even some other corner of the interwebs.

    Now, I'm here to ask dumb questions, maybe throw in the odd smart-a$$ed remark, and just generally be me.

    I've given up on trying to find factory made knives that fit my hands properly, so I've decided to try my luck at making my own some time soon. I plan to keep things real simple since I don't have much space to devote to a workshop (joys of being an apartment dweller, but maybe I'll be lucky enough to upgrade to a townhouse with a basement this summer.)

    I might have some preconceived notions about a lot of things, but when it comes to this, I'm like wet sand... dense but impressionable :D

    Life is too short to play nice. It's more fun to play naked though!

    Welcome Grizz,

    You can only be a FNG until you become a FOG like me. ;-)
    Hopefully you can get knifemaking done in the quiet and not get booted from the apartment. Balcony forge V1.0 coming right up!

    No naked pics please. LOL

    Cheers,

    Dan

    Well, if the g/f and I pull the trigger on that townhouse a few blocks away, I'll have a basement I can set up all my stuff in. One corner for reloading and gun work, another for making knives, and the rest to store stuff and park appliances. G/f wants the second bedroom to set up her home office, so my computer desk will probably find a home in the basement too.

    BTW, Dan, I blame you for getting me on this site. Your website has been a dearth of info, and you don't live all that far away!

    If you count me picking your brain over coffee or beer some time as trouble, then you're in deep! :D

    I was thinking about the apartment problem, a small trailer you could stand up in might work. Especially if in the back of the lot where it would not annoy to many neighbors with all the noise.

    Although the plugs outside can be load sensitive and may not take to a grinder being hooked up.

    That's a good idea, but not very effective for my current situation.

    Welcome to the forum Grizz. I had to Google FNG to find out what it means... got it now. Lol. My head must have been in my button.
