My name is Bill King, Retired boilermaker/welder. Always seem to have some form of metal in my hands, It was when my Gerber carring knife wouldn't hold up to every day tasks. I decided there had to be a better metal for a knife? don't get me wrong that greber 650 has had a good run and still going strong. Except i am always chipping the edge. While researching knifemaking i found you guys.I am just finshing up one knife,forge is almost finished.Really would enjoy the company while persuing the art. I'm always willing to share experiences, Thanks Bill.
