    New URL for KnifeMakerTraining

    Recently, Tim had to move the KnifeMakerTraining web site to a new server, and as a result, it required an updated URL. (www.knifemakertraining.com) What this means is that not only does the site itself have a new URL, but it means that the many links that I have posted have also changed, and...
