    Visit to Ed's

    IMG_2317.jpg



    I spent a few days at Ed's last week and had a great time. We puttered around the shop and made a bit of damascus. Here is a piece that is ready to accordian fold out. I think it worked out nice. I also started making a handle out of some sheep horn, which I've wanted to do for a long time.

    Almost have a maple leaf going in the middle there. You guys are having too much fun. Definitely going to have the right look to accordian out.

    Take care, Craig

    Jim, I was at Ed's the week before you were. Always a great time at Ed's. What you can see and learn even puttering around the shop is amazing. Ed's a great teacher with lots to offer. Looks like you had a good time. Are we going to see that damascus on a knife before long?

    That steel came out great Jim! Josh is right, accordion folding that billet would be a fitting way to break in that shiny new press.

    I had a great time when both Jim and John were here.....I spend so much time in the shop with just my two dogs....its always a treat to actually get to talk to someone who answers back!

    I finally got around to working on the knife I started at Ed's. He gave me some sheep horn to use as a handle. It turned out nice but I would have liked to have had more roughness from the horn. I never thinned the slabs out quite enough. Oh well, just reason enought to build another one.

    Nice utility hunter Jim. It'll work great this fall.

    Take care, Craig
