Hey, y'all! Goodness, I've been away from the fire for too long! I fired up the forge for the first time in over a year last week. Finished up this little fella today and have a coffin hilted bowie almost complete. By gum! It's good to be back at the craft!

Nice knife! I have to make a trip to Bama this spring. I am going to pick up an old forge and anvil that was my wife's grandfathers. He used it on their old farm in his day. I have always wanted to set up an old forge.

Hey Josh welcome back! I'm proud to have one of your patch knives. It keeps a sharp edge, and I get compliments on it where ever I go.

Welcome back Josh. John make sure that that forge and anvil aren't cursed. I bought an anvil and a post vise, and welded up a brake drum forge, just to occupy my time. Well I wound up having my good shoulder replaced this past summer. The doc says I might try using it lightly next month.
