Hey everyone! It's been a while. I've been checking in quite a bit the past week. Good to see some familiar names and many new. I've been keeping busy just unfortunately not with knives. The only knife related things I have done are re handle my first ever knife... wife uses it as a pairing knife and it was left on top of the toaster oven to many times. Lol... and some sharpening. I thought I'd check in here with a fresh introduction even though I'm not new, but it's been so long. I kind of disappeared when I had a dumb idea of doing side work from home and was working 50+ hours at my regular day job and then 40- 48 hrs in the evenings. Yes. All per week. I will never do that again unless there is a serious payout. It got to the point that even when I stopped the moonlighting thing my son would get mad when he saw me in front of the computer. After that I re did my 3 bedrooms and bathroom... still have a couple floors to go. Enough rambling. I never stopped thinking about knifemaking. I'm looking forward to squeezing in as much knife time as possible and getting back into the conversations here. Cant wait to meet the new members and catch up with the old.
