Amazing! That is truly awesome!

Musky, how did you get started in knife making? The idea of it has always been real attractive to me, but weighing against it is that I tend to learn by demonstration rather than being a self-study person. Just wondered if someone mentored you or if you just researched and started hitting steel.

my grandpa was a blacksmith, i was under his feet every time i got to see him. when i was about 12 or so i got interested in knives and started using grandpas grinder to make me one. i ended up breaking his grindstone but i made me a knife, black tape handles and everything. in high school i got suspended from school for making a knife in shop class, would not have got caught making it but i accident stabbed a guy in the hand when i was showing my friends how good of a throwing knife it was, he tried to catch it in mid air. the next year i got suspended from school again when the shop teacher caught me making another one. when i started working in machine shop i got fired from my first job for making a knife on company time, lol. by all means i should have quit years ago. these last few years youtube has been my teacher as well as a big scrap pile of dead knives. \:\)

Beautiful! That'd be something cool to know how to do!

Wow, to have a grandfather blacksmith... well these days, that's more like something out of a story book than anyone's real life! Sounds like you've paid some dues along the way. I'm a little (lot) envious of the art you're able to make.

I know that in Chattanooga there was a group that shared ownership and use of a small blacksmith shop, and you could go learn to work metal. I never got to participate in that. Maybe some day I'll find a second chance.
