Hey everyone, just wanted to post to introduce myself. My name is Brandon and I have been making knives for about two years now, mostly as a hobby. (sounds like an addictions meeting hey) Anyway, I am looking forward to picking up some great info here and being able to actually discuss ideas and skills with other makers relatively close to me. I made my first two knives out of D2 about ten years ago in about grade 10 in shop class. They turned out pretty good but it was 8 years before i got back into it and started making them again. So far i have made about 10 knives and all have been from 1084. I plan to get into some other steels but i had a bit of a stockpile of 1084 and wanted to use that up until i get my new grinder going. I am currently in the process of building a 2x72 which will hopefully make my life a lot easier. I would post a few pics of my work so far but it says i cant post attatchments. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and that i cant believe i didnt find this forum sooner.
