About Me
I am fairly new in the bus., collecting. and making of knives... it sort of hit me fast but Hard. I am a Cal. knives member, S.C. Blades member and am from Titusville Pa. The fact that my grand parents live literally across the street from the Cyclops SteelWorks site made me a GEC man right from the get -go.
My family calls me Josh, as I am Joe Martin Ball III. It gets tough when there are three Joe Balls in a town of five thousand. Also my father and I have a business called Schouweiler-Ball American Knives, Limited.... so again there two Joe Balls, so Josh will work just fine in this "family" as well.
Interests
I have been worked in the fields of caretaker for the developmentally and physically disabled community in various ways for many many years. I am also trained as a hospice worker. I am an artist (painting) currently and a poet (sort-of).
My newest passion has been knife making ever since my first California Knife Maker's Association meeting was held at Bob Loveless' work-shop. The blessings and openness of the knife community was on full display and I am down with the disease, as they say.
Other Hobbies
Tennis, Mountain Biking, Fishing

Hello Joe Ball, when it comes to 2007 GEC knives I am trying to collect all of the #53 Cubans with acrylic handles. I think in 2007 only the Northfields had acrylic Cubans. I have six different ones now and I need four more. The Grits & Molasses is going to be real hard to find, but I am willing to pay alot for it or maybe a few dirty deeds. P.S. To me the #53 Cuban is the three blade stockman not the muskrat. Good Luck my friend, talk to you later.

Hi Joe
Welcome to the GEC group. We're glad you joined us. Sorry about taking so long to welcome you, but I spent a week with my boys in Ontario on a fishing trip. I see you are into fishing, you might want to look at the pic's I've posted.

Sorry for not getting back sooner to your last comment...about you being an advocate for iKC- THANKS. We are having fun here and it is different than just a forum, as you can tell. If you have any suggestions on making it even better let me know....I can't change the code to the site but can do a few things. Thanks again, Joe.
