Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

The Hammer is I held in June went great. We had over 40 people anctious to teach and learn about bladesmithng.
Chris Paul taught wax carving for fittings and discussed different casting procedures.
Mark Eyer demonstrated leather working and sheath making.
Mike Alexander talked about Bowies and showed us how to bring out the grain on maple with acid & heat.
Butch Sheeley forged up a hawk out of wrought iron and a high carbon bit.
Erik Nelson talked about making Japaneese Katana fittings.
I forged a bowie out of Mike Alexanders Damascus.
Then we ate a ton of food and cut up water bottles aluminum cans and anything else that didn't move fast enough.

There are pictures in my album http://www.macabeeknives.com/articles/09Hammer-1n.html or in my photo album http://iknifecollector.ning.com/photo/album/show?id=3181080%3AAlbum%3A31149
