That is great. Ray doesn't know it but he has been one of my favorite makers for a few years. No doubt well deserved.

Thanks! I won Best Bowie. First time I have won bowie at this show. The blade that won was the blade I started when I did my last forging demo at the show last year. Here's a link to the knife: http://www.hawknknives.com/main_pages/ukids.html Maybe the award will help it sell.

Thanks a lot!

A couple weeks ago I decided to do something with the awards that I had stacked up in my bedroom. I thought I had found the perfect place out in my pole barn shop. There was one flat 2X6 that had been used above a door and a window opening that would work just right. Great all I had to do was set them up there and forget them. It worked great until a breeze slammed the door shut and half of the awards fell down. I spotted a nice new 2X4 and I had some brackets. Now I got a trophy shelf.


Up above is my photo set up. Its in use when the temps are above 40 degrees. We'll be moving back in the house shortly.
