"Eastwings are great tools. Did my very first forging using my Dad's favorite EW framing hammer. Hammered out a frog spear from rebar on a big rock. Had my little brother fanning the coals from a fire of pine cones with a trash can lid. Heck no,…"

Thanks for all the well wishes folks - love the knife cards (of course). Those of you that know me know that my "biggy" for my birthday is being able to hold the Trackrock Hammer-in's each fall. Hope those that can will join us.
