I'm a hobbyist bladesmith living in Anchorage Alaska.
I'm a regular on Don Fogg's forum, and followed a link from it to this site.
I really liked all the tutorials posted here. No matter how long you've been making knives, there is always something new to learn.
Attached are some photos of my most recently completed project.
875 layers of feathered "W" pattern (1095/15n20 mix)
Brazilian Rosewood handle.
Blued damascus and mild steel fittings.
The sword was designed by The Mad Dwarf Workshop. I built it with their permission after they posted a sketch of it on Don Fogg's forum.

I see that several members of Don's forum are also on this one, so I can tell already there are good folks here.
Looking forward to chatting and learning from you all.
