    Hey Folks,
    I am embarrassed to say that I have not come across this forum, until now. You can blame Brad L. for not telling me about it ... okay... well, at least I can blame him ... or maybe he did try to tell me and I was concentrating on his luxurious moustache at the time. Anyway, I'm here now and look forward to participating on the boards. See you around!

    Oh... and I am currently working on my new shop. Look out for a hammer-in!

    Hey wait a minute I can't get blamed for this. I'm going to blame beard envy, mine never looks that good.

    Seriously though good to see you on here Rick, your input will be valued

    Any guy with a beard is welcome here. :)

    Great work, too. I love the departure from the usual high polish finish.

    Welcome Rick! Nice looking hardware you're producing. What are you using to wrap your handles with?

    I was going to mention the magnificent facial fur but wasn't sure where the line.

    Well, I can't blame myself now can I? You're just upset that I found out where you hide to avoid me.
    Thanks. Departure is right... the only thing I make shiny is a dinner plate. Mmmn... meatloaf.
    Thank you, Jim. I use raw hemp cordage. Dyed and soaked in marine grade epoxy.
    Wait... I have a blog?.... Ha! It's only just beginning, bud. The wife has plans for the website and blog. I just nod, smile and try to look pretty(see avatar)

    Thank you all once again for the warm welcome.

    Cool my very first Internet stalker.

    So when are you going to travel over to the good side of the province? I would even sweep out the shop

    Those are some pretty sweet blades. Very cool aesthetic to them, kind of raw looking. Welcome!

    Welcome Rick, I was wondering if you were on here, I've been on your site a few times admiring your work. I'm just outside Lunenburg in Stonehurst.

    Cool. Hey, do you know anything about that fabrication shop in Blue Rocks? You must pass it, being out that way. We should get together. Do you know Mike Power? He's the Daggers Cove tattoo artist in Lunenburg. He also makes knives.

    Yeah that shop does a lot of aluminum and stainless work for boats, got a piece from them a few weeks back.
    I do know Mike, I was in and got some ink from him last summer.
    Anytime you want to get together would be great, would enjoy seeing the shop and learn about your process.
