Just a note to let anyone who is considering a Bladesmithing/Knifemaking class with me in 2017. Dates are filling up quickly, so if you're interested in a class, take a look at my Classes Webpage, and then email me your desired dates. The sooner we can get you on the calendar, the better the chances of getting the dates you desire.
I offer one-on-one classes from basic beginner, to advanced Damascus and folder classes.
At the bottom of my Classes webpage, there is a web calendar, showing dates that are filled. It should help you in choosing dates. Just a heads up..... ALL of May, and part of June are reserved so I can complete knives for the Blade Show. If you're considering a class ANY TIME in 2017, get the dates scheduled now! Otherwise it's very possible that the dates you desire will be filled.
All the best to everyone in 2017!
