Morning folks, My name is Jesse Bartram, been making knives for going on 7 years now. Started with stock removal from leaf springs and files and then some o1 that was a dream to work with compared to my shoddy annealed salvaged stuff. Wasnt to long into it before i got to forging, and that is my preferred method of blade making, for no other reason than i enjoy it and it lens me a bit of freedom with what material i am able to start out with. I joined the American bladesmith society after meeting ed Caffrey at a hammer in hosted at jim clows and have since passed the performance part of my journeyman smith testing. I love all the subtle nuances in the knife making. It seems no matter where you search there is always some new trick to learn. From beginners to masters, the willing passing on of knowledge in the knife community has always made me smile. Thanks for having me, and i look forward to learning from and sharing with you all.
