    We're glad to have you here.

    With that experience, you'll be right at home in a knife making shop. And now you've got us to help with any questions you have along the way.

    Welcome Daniel. Yeah, the bug won't kill you for sure. It will drive you slowly insane at times, make you spend money in ridiculous amounts and want to withdraw from people and hide in the shop. So, it's not all bad : )

    Hey, I checked out your website. You make pretty cool stuff with some amazing slabs of wood. Great pieces.

    For those who want to take a look, the URL is http://www.knotsandsteel.com/in-the-shop

    Beautiful live edge stuff. I like to make live edge furniture myself but no where near as nice as your. I have had troubles finding any slabs since i moved down near Windsor. If your knives are half as nice as your bars and tables, you've got it made.

    PS - love the slabs knitted together with bow ties.

    Thanks guys
    That gives you a idea where I’m hiding most the time...in the shop.
    I’m working on the forge again today
    I will give you a update on that soon
