    Hi All,

    One of your own, Icho, solicited me from Knifedogs! Thanks. I'm happy for the opportunity to meet other Canadian makers and build my Canadian knife making network.

    Thanks for the push, Icho!

    I already recognize some of your screen names from Knifedogs, I expect this forum will have the same positive, and encouraging atmosphere.

    I look forward to meeting all of you.

    Duncan

    Hello Duncan, how is life up in Whitehorse?

    My grandparents used to run a fly-in fishing business up there and I always loved visiting.

    Can't wait to see some of the works and input from another of the experienced members here

    Thank you all, for the warm welcome. I know I will benefit from the knowledge you all safe here, and maybe I'll have something to contribute as well.

    Icho, I try to get some pics up soon of some past work.

    Bushdriver, Whitehorse is a great place to live. I love the outdoors and clean air and water, there is a lot of it here. Some folks don't like the long winter, but that is when the best knives get built! It looks like you need a welcome to the site as well, Welcome!

    Rob, look me up when you come to Whitehorse next. I would be fun to meet you and talk knives.

    Duncan

    Thanks, Steve. Your the guy on here that builds 30 knives at a time, right? I'l be watching for tips from you, I'd like to be more efficient.

    Lol...yup but hopefully not all of the time ;) lately I've been treating every dozen or so blades as if they are one, although it feels like a project that will never end there are times when it all comes together...lol!

    Six at a time feels like a lifetime for me! But 2 hours a night after the kids are in bed isn't much time!
