    I'm a hobby wood crafter gone knife maker. I had no more room for raise panel chests. And thought Hey I could always have room for more knives! Forged my first two blades less then a year ago from grade 8 hardened bolts in the wood stove in the garage. ( since made electric kiln? And electric crucible/foundry) Made a few more knives since and am very pleased with the results. Can't believe how much I enjoy the craft! Already gave away a knife to my brother for $200.

    I'm here with hopes of getting contact ideas for supplies/trade show dates. Thought I saw something for this weekend in southern ontario. But can't seem to search anything. Might as been an old thread

    Welcome Mike. I love North Bay. I almost bought a house up there this past year, backing right on to Samuel de Champlain Prov. Park. Beautiful country.
