Hi everyone. I'm Rick Runciman from Calgary. I'm a lifer journeyman machinist who began making knives 30 years ago after spending an afternoon talkin knives and enjoying a few cold ones with Bryan Lyttle. Being a machinist, I am into stock removal and cutlery grade stainless. I have a small machine shop in my garage where I've decided to take my fun and amazing hobby into a retirement business to supplement my pensions. Not looking to get rich and if I can sell 3 or 4 pieces a month, I'll be a happy camper. I'm looking forward to meeting many like minded people here, and will be able to be helpful with any questions regarding machining. Thanks for allowing me the privilege of joining your forum. I notice pics are not hosted on this server, so I'll set up a web page and host my pics on the Apache webserver built in my Mac. Coming shortly.
