    Hello from the Kingston area.

    I just wanted to take a moment to say hello as a new member.

    I'm new to the field of knife making, but have been interested in it for years. I have a large collection of knives and look forward to finally making my own.

    I am making plans to take introductory blacksmith courses for the spring as I would really like to have the satisfaction of making my own blade from start to finish.

    I found a really good link that has great resources for the blacksmith; most are books in PDF format form the early 1900's and show traditional techniques. They are free to download and use.

    I look forward to learning and growing in this field and find it nice to have found a Canadian home for the field.

    Below is a link to the site I referred to. I hope you find it as informative as I have.

    Welcome Daremo.

    I am also a newbie. I'm getting close to starting my first knife, although I will be sticking to stock removal for some time before I attempt any forging.

    Good luck and don't forget to post some pics for us all to see.

    Cheers.
    Gary.
